"I also use cake mixes with chocolate chips or M and M's. My personal favorite is to use Spice Cake mix (sans chips), then sprinkle cinnamon-sugar on cookies prior to baking."

I love to make these cookies. I have made them umpteen times. I make them with brownie mix and not cake mix. The ones with the cake mix are too, well...cakey. These turn out yummy chewy and they are the easiest cookies in the world to make. I have found the trick to make them perfect, non-spreading, and non-sticking. Instead of adding the eggs and oil separately; beat the eggs and oil together in a small bowl first, then add it to the mix and combine. Now, you can do your additions. Butterscotch, semi-sweet, milk chocolate, heath bits, coconut, nuts, or whatever your fancy. I use a small cookie scoop and cooke for 12 minutes. Crunchy on the outside, chewy on the inside. They turn out perfect

I really wanted these to be amazing. I read all of the reviews and decided I was going to go with the exact recipe with one exception. I refrigerated the dough for about an hour. There is nothing wrong with the taste of these cookies but the are very difficult to work with. All the time you save with prep you waste after baking. You have to watch like a hawk in the oven because they go from under to over very quickly. You also have to time your removal from cookie sheet precisely...too short cookie literally falls apart in your hand making a yummy mess. Too long and you need a crow bar to get them off of tray, again, yummy mess. I ended up only getting about 10 servable cookies. the rest were a yummy crumble.


I followed the recipe exactly as written. I did not use a Cake Mix, like alot of others did, because it called for a Brownie Mix. Based on actual recipe posted, these did not turn out well at all! I only baked them for 7 minutes, second sheet 6 minutes. Looked fine when they came out, but when I tried to remove them from the sheet, they were stuck like glue! I ended up with a crumbled mess. Even had to break out a knife to scrape them off. Rated 2 stars ONLY because submitter did suggest a cake mix as well and everyone who did it that way had no problems. Otherwise, it's a zero.
