Dear Santa – I’ve tried so hard to be mostly good all year long, with a moderate degree of consistency. I rescued a kitten. Kissed babies. Picked up litter in the park. And, even helped an old lady cross the road.
Just asking for a bit of leeway on that 1 night in Copenhagen, 2 nights in Vegas & afternoon on Lake Michigan this past Summer.
Oh. Also. A dozen of these cookies & an ice cold glass of milk are waiting for you next to the Christmas Tree.
Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays! -David

- In separate large mixing bowl thoroughly combine cake mix, eggs, oil & vanilla.
- Test a spoonful batter when no one is looking - Just to make sure it's "safe to consume." Also, consider retesting with a 2nd spoonful if initial results were inconclusive.;)
