I have made this recipe several times with my kids because it is so very simple. For the cookie to have flavor, you need to buy a mix with flavor. Chocolate is our favorite but we have also enjoyed lemon, orange, funfetti, and strawberry. If you are using a white or yellow cake mix, those don't have any flavor as a cake and therefore won't have any as a cookie. If I don't have a flavorful mix on hand, I will add lemon juice, or peppermint extract, or some other flavor agent so that the cookie will not be bland. I have also noticed that some of the cheaper mixes don't make as nice of a cookie compared to some of the more expensive mixes, particularly where taste is concerned. Once I make the dough I sometimes roll it into a log and refrigerate for an hour or so. Once the roll is cold it is easy to slice in even 1/4 inch circles for baking. . Sometimes I will roll in sugar, nuts, or coconut for added flavor and texture before baking. You need to watch while baking as these seem to brown quickly at the end and can be easily overcooked.
