Cake Mix Cookies II Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 1)
Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2009
The batter smelled, tasted, and looked wonderful...alas, it was utter deception. These cookies burn easily, even at a lower temp setting. They thin out very quickly and end up very hard without being burnt. The idea is great, b/c you can use a variety of cake mix flavors and add-ins. They turned out very dry and looked a mess...

I made these and added 1/2 cup of coconut and 1/2 cup or so of milk chocolate chips. The dough will seem very dry but it cut fine after chilling and baked up beautifully. I don't think Jennymoon did it right....they aren't that bad. They tasted like little yellow cakes with built in chocolate frosting...Yum!! They were a very good quick cookie to make in a hurry....

Not as bad as Jennymoon stated. Cut the oil, increase butter to 1/2 cup and add nuts or chocolate chips.

This is by far the worst cookie recipe I've ever had the misfortune to find and make. It's dry, difficult to cut, and doesn't taste good. Spare yourself!
