Jiffy Cornbread Cookies

Cornbread Cookies | With Lovely,

If you love cornbread (and really, who doesn’t?), you must must must make these cookies! They’re fluffy and a little chewy and every bit as tasty as you’d imagine.

The best part? They give you a great excuse to up your honey butter (cream cheese frosting) to cornbread (cookie) ratio. Yum!

    I really liked these, I had the mix and didn’t know what to do with it ‘cuz I didn’t want more cornbread, these cookies were great. The only thing is that I added 1/4 a cup of sugar to it, after that I shared them with everyone! Thx for the great recipe

      Hi Heather! I’m sorry I didn’t record the yield, but I believe it made about 12 large cookies, or you could probably make 24 small cookies.
