My friend Mary G., she of the Speed-Scratch French Dinner among Friends, sends us this tempting new recipe for herb cookies. With holiday baking time arriving soon, I can't wait to try these!

Lemon Basil Cookies

1 8 oz. package of cream cheese, softened
1/4 c butter, softened
1 egg
2 1/2 t lemon juice

Add and mix well: 1 box lemon cake mix

Add 3/4 c finely chopped nuts and 1 T dried basil

Dough will be quite stiff. Place teaspoonfuls of dough on greased cookie sheet and bake at 350 for 15 minutes; take care that bottoms don't burn.

A fantastic variation on the old cake mix cookie recipe! I will definitely try this for the next holiday party I attend. :)

Go Mary G.!

Dear Liz,

I would love to try these, too. I am still oven-challenged at the moment, so that time seems like a long way off though.
