      These were easy to make. I used yellow cake mix. EAsy clean up - a no fuss cookie. That is my kind of cookie recipe. Moist and :yummy: What else could you ask for. Made for I Recommend Tag Game.

      These were good, but had to bake them longer than 5 minutes, more like 8 minutes. I used yellow cake mix and milk chocolate chip cookies. As mentioned - they are a good "in a hurry" cookie. I only got something like 28 cookies, which may be why it required a longer baking time. Thanks for posting. Made for I Recommend Tag game.

      I decided to use 1/2 cup butter Crisco per others suggestions. It worked perfect for the red velvet cookies, which formed nice crackley tops and a nice shape. However, the German chocolate cookies didn't spread at all. in fact, half way through baking, when I noticed they weren't budging, I flattened each with a glass and finished baking. The differance in the mixes is that the red velvet didn't have pudding in the mix and the German chocolate did so the next time I make these, if the cake mix has pudding in the mix, I will use the 2/3 cup as written. Otherwise, very good and it will be alot of fun experimenting with differant flavores. I topped the red velvet with cream cheese frosting and red sprinkles and pecan coconut frosting on the German chocolate.
