Gingerbread Cake Cookies

These were supposed to be a Cooking with Charlotte recipe, but the little darling wasn't feeling so great and no one wants to eat cookies prepared by a sick person. But, the baking must go on!

This recipe comes by my step-mom. They're super simple since part of the recipe is using a cake box of spice cake. Yes, I could have figured out how to do it from scratch, but sometimes these super mommy-friendly recipes are what you need on hand instead one with a long list of ingredients.
These will be a fun repeat around the holidays. Perhaps they'll make it onto my cookie plate this year.
