I LOVE this recipe! I love it's versatility and how quickly it can be prepared. I've tried several variations so far...yellow cake mix, with a chocolate drizzle...this were ok. Then I tried chocolate cookies, rolling some of the balls in powdered sugar, and some in cocoa powder. The cocoa powder disappeared, both in flavor and appearance. But the powdered sugar comes out really nicely and tastes great. However, my favorite variation so far was the one I just tried. I followed the recipe exactly...choosing a BC Butter Pecan Cake mix. Then I rolled the balls in a mixture of powdered sugar and cinnamon. When I put them on the cookie sheet, I flattened them into little patties with my fingertips. I let them bake just until they had risen a little. I pulled them out before they had a chance to brown really (the cinnamon gives that appearance) and they were still very chewy in the middle when they were all cool. I think it was about 7-8 minutes. They were DIVINE! I think they're my favorite cookie of all time, even better than chocolate chip cookies. So try this variation, I think you'll like it.
