Cake Mix Cookies

January 11, 2012




I have a confession....I like shortcuts.  Anything to make life a bit easier at times is great by me.  Call it impatience, call it laziness. Sometimes, it just fits me.

That's why I like these cookies. Now, I made pancakes with cake mix and then, these cookies over Christmas, but, these are even easier. Just three ingredients.  Three!  Well..maybe more than three if you want to add chocolate chips, nuts, toffee..whatever you wish.  

I used a yellow cake mix and mixed in about 2/3 cup of chocolate chips.  So, go crazy!

They are so easy...you must try them.

  8. Hmm curiuos if it will work with a 16.25 oz box. May need to adjust the oil a little. What ya think?

    1. Hi Miriam- you could probably cut back the oil a bit, but, the 1/2 cup worked great for me. If you try them with the oil adjustment, please let me know how they turn out :)

  9. My batter turned out really crumbly, the cookies turned out fine, but do you think it matters that I used egg white substitute instead of whole eggs? Maybe I should do that next time.

    1. Hi Kellie- It probably was the substitute, but, if the cookies were fine, it shouldn't matter if the batter was crumbly.
      Hope you enjoyed them..thanks for stopping by :)
