In a mixing bowl, combine the Cool Whip, cake mix and the egg. Then take spoonfuls of the fluffy mixture and roll them in powdered sugar so they’re well-coated. Place each one on a baking sheet. Now, the cookies go into a 350°oven for 13-20 minutes, depending on how big you made the balls of “dough.” Feel free to dust the cooled cookies with extra powdered sugar for a added sweetness and visual interest.

If you don’t have Cool Whip on hand, you can use this whipped topping substitute instead.
