cherry chip snow ball cookies

i had illusions of grandeur, thinking i was going to go all food blog and take pictures of me making these step by step. i got over it really fast when life intervened and insisted i pay attention to the crisis at hand. that being said, this is a quick post that i can share with you guys and maybe help a little this busy Christmas season.
i stumbled across this recipe on a completely unrelated website. i wanted to try it because it was so easy and i love to try new recipes. one of my best friends asked me to bring dessert to her Christmas dinner and i picked out an elegant and fancy dessert to make. turns out i was short one very important ingredient(that never happens to me)and did not have the time to run to the store, make the dessert, and get ready to go to the party. i decided to take the batch of these cookies after a long mental debate over what was worse, going empty handed or taking stupid cake mix cookies? i took the cookies and apologized profusely for my lame offering. my friend doesnt bake at all and thought anything was great. i didnt think anyone would touch them. they were scarfed down like crazy! everyone loved them and asked me for the recipe. to think i was ashamed of those little cookies. they were the hit of the party!

1 cherry chip cake mix
1/2 8oz tub of cool whip
1 egg
powdered sugar

stir the cake mix, cool whip, and egg together. it will be very sticky. take out spoonfuls and drop into a bowl of powdered sugar. once coated, roll int a ball between your hands, then roll in the powdered sugar about 2 inches apart on a greased cookie sheet. bake at 350 for 8-10 min. really watch them becasue they burn fast!
