Cake Mix Cookies

Hi everyone!! Hope your day is going good. Today I'm going to share a super easy cookie recipe that I found three years ago on Skip To My Lou. It is so easy and they really are very good too. This is a good recipe to have when the kids yell at 10:00 at night, "hey Mom I need two dozen cookies for school tomorrow". Bet that hasn't ever happened to you right!? Okay, enough talking let's get started. In a large mixing bowl combine your eggs, cake mix and oil ( I used a 1/2 cup of oil when I make my cookies).Mix it all together until it looks like this, yes, it will look dry and be sticky and it may crumble just a bit but that is correct.Now take about two tablespoons of your dough and make into round balls. As you can see here I have a handy, dandy cookie scooper for when I make cookies, it holds two tablespoons. My mother got this one for me before I got married (clear back in 1979) and it makes making cookies sooo easy and fast too! I would recommend you get one for yourself too! Here they are all lined up to go into the oven. Now you can leave them rounded or you can squish them down some if you want, your preference.Here they are after baking.

Now after they have cooled, ice them with your canned icing or if you want, your favorite homemade icing. The ones I made today taste like little brownie bites to me.

You can use any flavor of cake mix you like, white cake mix taste like sugar cookies. I've had some made using the Funetti cake mix too. They are all good in my book! Hope you enjoyed this simple recipe to day, now go make some, hurry!! Mary
Cake Mix Cookies
1 Cake Mix, your favorite brand
2 eggs
1/3 to 1/2 cup oil (I used 1/2 cup for this tutorial)
Mix together cake mix, eggs and oil until well combined. Place balls onto a parchment lined cookie sheets (you will need two sheets). Bake at 350 degrees for 10 to 13 minutes. Cookies will be soft. Ice cookies after they have cooled to the touch. Makes 20 cookies.

When I make this I get either 22 or 23 cookies, you could steal some dough from some and squeeze out 24 if you need 24 cookies.

Well, how simple is that?! Cool! You know what stinks? In our schools, they don't allow anything homemade anymore!! I find this depressing, lol! However, it sure makes it easier when your kid comes home and says they need two dozen cookies tomorrow, lol!
