This is about as easy as it gets for a cookie recipe. Rip open a box of cake mix, plop in two eggs and a little oil, and voila! Great cookies! I made mine too big, so by the time they cooked on top, the bottoms were pretty well done. Just follow the recipe and make "little balls" and you'll be good to go! UPDATE: I made these the next night with lemon cake mix. I scooped a bit up with a teaspoon, rolled it in a ball, dipped it in sugar and baked. They were super delicious. Another Update: We made these with dark chocolate cake mix and 1/2 bag of chocolate chips. The best yet! Perfection.



I LOVE this recipe! I love it's versatility and how quickly it can be prepared. I've tried several variations so far...yellow cake mix, with a chocolate drizzle...this were ok. Then I tried chocolate cookies, rolling some of the balls in powdered sugar, and some in cocoa powder. The cocoa powder disappeared, both in flavor and appearance. But the powdered sugar comes out really nicely and tastes great. However, my favorite variation so far was the one I just tried. I followed the recipe exactly...choosing a BC Butter Pecan Cake mix. Then I rolled the balls in a mixture of powdered sugar and cinnamon. When I put them on the cookie sheet, I flattened them into little patties with my fingertips. I let them bake just until they had risen a little. I pulled them out before they had a chance to brown really (the cinnamon gives that appearance) and they were still very chewy in the middle when they were all cool. I think it was about 7-8 minutes. They were DIVINE! I think they're my favorite cookie of all time, even better than chocolate chip cookies. So try this variation, I think you'll like it.



These are great cookies when you don't want to mess with a lot of indgredients. I read all of the reviews on the cookies with cake mixes and this is what I came up with. I used 2 eggs, a yellow cake mix with pudding, 1/2 cup of oil, 2 teaspoons vanilla, and 1 1/3 cups quick cooking oatmeal. I used a cookie scoop, patted the cookies flat and dipped them in a mix of cinnamon and sugar. I baked them on a stone for about 10 minutes. I removed them when they were still pretty gooey in the middle. I let them sit on the cookie sheet for at least 2 minutes before removing them to cool on foil. The next day, they are still crisp on the outside and chewy on the inside. They turned out like "snickerdoodles" which is one of my families favorites. My kids loved these, they were so easy to make, and I enjoyed one with a cup of coffee this morning. Thanks for the recipe!
