1 (18.25 ounce) package
yellow cake mix
semisweet chocolate chips or other goodies
MMM MMM GOOD!
Use a rubber spatula to stir the ingredients. Then, using the spatula, cut into the dough and form into small-medium balls.
Pillsbury Moist Supreme Strawberry cake mix plus a tablespoon of berry jam. -SO TASTY!!! I made them for a party and they were loved by all (a younger favorite).
Betty Crocker's Carrot Cake mix plus one cup of rolled oats... EVEN BETTER!!! It makes a ginger cookie look-alike that has a lovely spice taste and is very very good (an older favorite). Next time I will also add raisins for a sweet touch.
I baked the cookies 12-14 minutes and made 44 medium, perfectly round cookies (for BOTH variations)
It Must say "Pudding in the mix" or "Supermoist"
It really makes the difference with the out come.I used Duncan Heines Supermoist Yellow Cake Mix and It came out Excellent!!!!Will deffinately make it again!
The only area where I would rate this recipe high is in the quickness of preparation. Other than that, nothing remarkable. The batter comes out immensely greasy and the vanilla flavoring of the cake mix is rather overpowering. Won't make it again.
I've been making these for years to rave reviews but have never tried adding baking powder. This worked well! I found that 1/3 cup oil as suggested by others, wasn't enough to stir the dough. I used chocolate cake mix (ALWAYS Duncan Hines) and added chocolate chips. I split the dough, added nuts to half and sprinkled those with nuts with powdered sugar after baking, so people could tell the difference. All were yummy. This is a great last minute recipe and people never guess it's made of cake mix.
These are the best easy cookies you'll ever make! Keep some cake mixes and mix-ins on hand and you'll always be prepared. They take no time to make and bake. It's also fun to try different combinations. We liked spice cake mix and raisins the best...they taste like the best oatmeal-raisin cookies you've ever had, minus the grittiness of the oatmeal. We also like golden cake mix with cinnamon chips. Chocolate cake mix with coconut wasn't that great - it would probably be better if the coconut was sprinkled on top (we mixed it in). For the kids, I've used vanilla mix with m&ms and they loved it! You really don't need too much of the mix-ins...if you put in too much, the dough breaks apart a little. Try these...you'll love them!
Great cookies! I used duncan hines devils food cake mix and added milk choc. chips and walnuts. They were so moist and good. I can't wait to try them with peanut butter chips. As far as the ingredients go , I feel they are perfectly accurate. Especially if you use duncan hines brand. I do not know how the yellow cake mix will turn out, but I'm not worried. Although these cookies are a close second to my favorite choc. peanut butter cup cookies on this site, I will probably make these more because they're faster, easier and just as good. But we all know there's nothing like the goodness baking from scratch.
OHHHHH absolutely the best recipe ever. I used spice cake mix with cinimmon chips - yummm tasted like soft gingerbread, also did devils food with butterscotch chips - those went very fast. This will be a staple in my house forever :)
A quick and wonderful recipe for those who need options in their dessert. My husband is allergic to chocolate and sugar cookies get old. I halfed the batter put chocolate chips in one half for my kids and put oatmeal, walnuts and cinnamon in the other half for my husband. Turned out great. My only modification was a tablespoon of water to the oat mixture to help with the stiffness. A winner in my house!
