There really isn't an Amish connection to this recipe, it's just a fun, colorful cookie to share with you. Most Amish cooks - most - don't regularly use boxed cake mixes. But they do on occasion. I mean, the general culinary cultural tendency is for most Amish cooks to be scratch cooks, but everyone - Amish, non-Amish, etc - occasionally has to cut a corner for speed's sake or just doesn't have time for scratch cooking. That is when box cake mixes come in handy and sometimes you can use boxed cake mix to make cookies. Yum!
These were recently served at a friend's birthday party. Yum
