THIS WEEK'S CRAVINGS BLOG PARTY #2 and White Chocolate Lemon Cake Cookies

Thanksgiving Cookies & Treat Recipes

The first week of Pumpkin Recipes was AWESOME to say the least: We now have over 41 Pumpkin Recipes for you to refer back to anytime during this wonderful fall season to create, bake and eat your heart out. Now this week will will be featuring Thanksgiving Cookies & Treat Recipes make sure when you link up your recipe that it matches our theme for the week and please don't forget to leave a DIRECT link back to this post so that all of the blog hoppers can see all the fun recipes.

Now for my first Thanksgiving Cookie Recipe: My niece had told me about this recipe she tried over at a friends house (Alisha, from Portland) and that it was a MUST try recipe. Sure enough they sent me the recipe and I just had to make it. I thought this recipe would be perfect for a different kind of cookie at Thanksgiving. With the light Lemon flavor and the yummy white chocolate (which is my absolute favorite), they are just perfect. And they are so easy to make. I am NOT a lemon fan but these cookies are actually so good and so addicting, I've had plenty over the last 24 hours. Good thing I donated most of them for my son's 6th grade class bake sale for the High School Homecoming game last night.

I loved making these cookies for the High School Homecoming Bake Sale!
White Chocolate Lemon Cake Cookies
Alisha from Portland, Oregon

1 Lemon Cake Mix
1 Vanilla Cake Mix
4 eggs
4 tbsp water
1 cup oil
2 tsp vanilla
1 bag of White Chocolate Chips
powdered sugar to roll cookies

Pre-heat oven to 350. Mix first 6 ingredients together and stir by hand. Add in the white chocolate chips and continue until all mixed together. Roll into balls (or use an ice cream scooper, works perfectly); then roll balls into powdered sugar and drop onto a sprayed cookie sheet. Bake for exactly 10 minutes.

Everyone is invited, if you don’t have a blog, then please post your recipe HERE in the comments for others to see.
