Cake Mix Cookies I

Recipe by  

"A friend gave me this recipe several months ago. I have tried several variations including using a carrot cake mix with white chocolate chips and chocolate cake mix with butterscotch chips - the variety is endless! Note: I haven't had a great deal of success in storing these cookies more than one or two days. They seem to toughen up rather quickly."

These are great cookies. The secret to keeping them ( or any cookies ) fresh is to place a slice of bread in the storage container.

I've never been a fan of yellow cake, but this recipe gives me a good reason to keep it around. These won't pass for 'regular' cookies in my house, but they're sweet and satisfy the cookie craving quickly. Instead of 2 cups of chips, I did 1 cup of butterscotch chips and 3/4 cup of chopped walnuts. They all got eaten. A good recipe to have on hand when I'm feeling too lazy to make real cookies.

I used applesauce instead of oil for this recipe and it was great. The flavor is still great, and it seriously cuts down on fat and calories.

I wanted to whip up a batch of cookies to give away but didn't have butter so this was the perfect answer. I should mention that I turned oven oven before I started and by the time I had these whipped up and two cookie sheets prepared, my oven was just finishing the that is quick. Ease of prep and ingredients, as well as versatility make this a great recipe for busy moms....children could make these. I didn't add the extra water..used a 'golden butter recipe' mix, added butterscotch and white choc. morsels. The first batch just came out and it is a wonderful tasting combo. Good to read reviews to find out they dry out quickly...the old slice of bread always does the trick. Lightly sprayed cookie sheets and would recommend not letting these sit too long before removal or they would stick.

Awesome and easy! I'm a fairly good cook but baking has proven to be more of a challenge to me than I'd expected. These are idiot proof! I added an extra egg since it seemed dry and I've read that that'd be good to add an egg for fluff and/or chewieness, and I used 1 1/3 cups white chocolate chips and 1/4 cup chopped amlonds. Awesome! I did not make the mistake of overbaking as I usually do, and removed at exactly 10 minutes. I will sooooooooooooooooo make these again! Thanks!!

So Easy! I used Lemon cake mix, added 1 tsp lemon extract and 1 c. fresh cranberries. Bake 13 min, cool 1 min. before removing. Wow! Moist and firm, not crumbly or dry yet. Made Tb. size- only 24 cookies, could eat all these by myself. If making the tsp. size cookie there would be only 1 cranberry in each, not a bad idea for presentation. Excellent recipe, easy to adapt to anything!

Try using cake mix, 1 egg, and an 8 oz. container of Cool Whip. I think you will find the cookies will keep longer.
