Cheater Cookie Dough--7 Virgins

I don't use too many mixes in my kitchen, but these cookies make the exception. They were the perfect cookie to use to teach my granddaughters, and they had 7 virgins to choose from.

We call them 7 Virgins because my oldest granddaughter thought I said virgin instead of version. She told her teacher that she she made 7 virgins with her grandma and it has become a family joke.

Since then I have added several other "virgins".
