  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, mix butter and eggs until light and fluffy. Stir in cake mix, quick oats, and walnuts. Roll dough into walnut sized balls. Place cookies onto the prepared baking sheet, and flatten slightly with the bottom of a glass that has been buttered and dipped in sugar.
  3. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in preheated oven, or until golden brown. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.

I LOVE this recipe! I don't think I'll ever make cookies from scratch again; plus there are so many variations that can be done with this. A few that I have tried are: Coconut cake mix, with 1/2 cup shredded coconut, 1/2 cup macadamia nuts, and 1/2 cup chocolate chips; Lemon cake mix with 1 cup white chocolate chips; Strawberry cake mix with 1/2 cup shredded coconut and 3/4 cup white chocolate chips; Carrot cake mix with 2/3 cup oats and 1/2 cup raisins. YUMMY! I have so many more flavors to experiment with! I did find that I had to bake them a bit longer than the recipe called for, about 11-12 minutes. Try this one, you won't regret it!



Didn't have a yellow mix so instead used a devil's food. Also used margarine. I didn't press down, left them in balls, as I like a cakier, softer cookie. These were delish! They tasted like little brownies. The only other mod. I used nuts and choc. chips, and M&M's to equal 1/2 cup total. These were not sticky at all and were a snap to make, economical, and very uniform because the dough was beautiful to work with and easily made so with the help of a cookie scoop. I only had an ALDI'S brand mix which is super cheepo and they still were wonderful. Didn't taste like a mix at all. Versatile recipe and so quick and easy, not to mention good-tasting.



My mother made these for my kids when she came to visit. She used a lemon cake mix and added a package of lemonade kool-aid and a Tbls. of lemon juice. These were sooooo good. I can't wait to try other variations......... I just tried another concoction of a spice cake mix with craisins, raisins, and walnuts. So yummy!
