DEAR MELBA: My 9-year-old granddaughter likes to make these cookies when she comes to my house.

DEAR MELBA: I've used this cookie recipe with great success.
Try them with chocolate cake mix or substitute lemon cake mix. The whipped topping needs to be regular, not fat free or sugar free.
1 box chocolate cake mix
1/2 cup chopped nuts, optional
13/4 cups prepared whipped topping
1 cup sifted confectioners sugar
• In large bowl of electric mixer, blend together dry cake mix, eggs, nuts and whipped topping. Dough will be stiff. Refrigerate about 30 minutes until easy to handle. Heat oven to 350 degrees and move oven rack to middle of oven.
