I am upgrading to five stars. Just made again - this time with lemon mix. This is a spectacular recipe because it is the easiest ever and the possibilities are endless. I baked them 2 minutes longer than recommended and kept them smaller sothey got a little more crispy around the edges. Going to frost them up with plain vanillla frosting. Will add lemon peel next time. Have also tried chocolate with mini chips - wonderful. Previous review --Made with spice cake mix, walnuts and toffee bits. This one is as easy as it gets. Was worried that they might be a bit too cakey, but they firmed up nicely and did have a little crispness on the outside after cooling. Will try again with some of the other combinations suggested by other reviewers. Thanks for a super easy, very versatile recipe that will become a go-to. :] Another one - used white mix, about 1 tsp almond extract, then added coconut and dark chocolate chips. Sort of like a macaroon, or an Almond Joy. Mmmmm.
Updated. I read a Heloise column that talked about mixing the add-ins and cake mix together first. Then mix eggs and oil together, adding to dry ingredients last. I tried it and they came out better. While I love scratch, it's great to be able to whip up something fast. Red velvet or chocolate with while chocolate chips. Yummy!,
These were a huge hit with the family. They are almost all gone and will be after school gets out! I added the vanilla as recommended in another review. I substituted applesauce for the oil. I used Pillsbury Devil's Food cake mix and the mini chocolate chips. Thanks a million for an easy quick hassle free yummy cookie!
My husband was put on a low fat diet by his doctor. I was wondering how I was going to make low fat treats for him when I came across this recipe. I knew at once that I could tweak it to fit our needs.I made these using yellow cake mix, substituted applesauce for the oil and sprinkled them with cinnamon sugar. They came out so soft and yummy and smelled so good while baking. My family absolutely loved them and DH declared them to be even better than the usual applesauce cookies I make. I then tried a lemon cake mix, followed the recipe, and dusted them with powdered sugar. DIVINE! My MIL and I liked them a great deal but DH's grandma fell in love with them! Thank you for this recipe. It's a keeper!
