I really liked the consistency of this cookie; just be careful not to overbake! I was, on the otherhand, dissapointed that the cake mix overpowered this cookie. First, I made a batch with the yellow cake mix-they smelled heavenly while baking. Then, I made another batch using a lemon flavored cake mix I had on hand. I though the lemon addition was good, but the cake mix again overpowered the cream cheese flavor. Since I found this recipe so easy, I intend to experiment again with a chocolate cake mix, a white cake mix, and perhaps an angel food cake mix. For perfect thumbprin cookies made with this recipe, take cookies out of oven (remember DO NOT overbake) and indent immediatly and fill with your desired filling. I used canned cherries as another reviewer suggested, as well as rasberry preserves. The rasberry came out wonderful with the lemon cookies. Also, for storage purposes, leave your cookies out uncovered overnight, and then dust with a bit of powdered sugar. This will help so they are not so sticky. Although I did not give this a 5 star rating, I do believe that with some tinkering on my part, it will become a staple. It is a desireable recipe because it is quick, easy, and utilized everyday ingredients. Good luck to those that try this out. Any other ideas for this would be wonderful!-CynDMn28 : )
