Cake Mix Cookies
1 pkg. cake mix 2 eggs
1/3 c. vegetable oil
Heat oven to 375. Combine cake mix, oil and eggs in large bowl. Stir with spoon until thoroughly moistened. Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Place 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets. Flatten to 1/4 inch thickness with bottom of glass dipped in flour. Bake 6-8 minutes or until edges are light golden brown. Cool 1 minute; remove from cookie sheets. Makes about 3 dozen.
Yum! They had a different texture than traditional cookies, yet I wouldn't really call them cake-like either. Definitely tasty though.
I decided to try a chocolate cake mix (Duncan Hines Devil's Food this time) and experiment with mix-ins. Trevor and I mixed up the cookie dough, then divided it in thirds.
We left the first third plain and skipped the step about flattening the dough. After baking them, we sprinkled them with powdered sugar. Very tasty- they reminded me of fudgy brownies.
We added a ton of chocolate chips to the next third. They were gooey and delicious.
We added Guittard mint chocolate chips to the final third. So delicious! I can't believe such a good cookie was so simple to make.
I still love baking cookies from scratch, but for speed and convenience you can't beat cake mix cookies! We'll try some other flavors the next time we need something quick and easy for a potluck.
