Ingredients
  1. 1 package (15-17 oz.) cake mix, any flavor
  2. 2 eggs, slightly beaten
  3. 1/2 cup oil
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 325. Lightly grease cookie sheet (you can use non-stick cooking spray... which saves hassle).
  2. Combine all ingredients together and mix well. Drop by teaspoonfuls (I make mine into balls about 1/2 the size of golfballs... or about the size of a quarter) onto cookie sheet. Bake for 8-10 minutes, or until the edges are starting to brown and they lose the glossy look on the top, then remove from oven and let cool 1 minute before removing to wire rack to cool completely. Makes approximately 3 dozen cookies.
The following variations work well
  1. Any flavor cake mix will work... chocolate, white, cherry chip, banana, etc.
  2. The cookies can be iced with regular cake icing (Ready-to-Spread type)*... they are just really hard to store
  3. Double Chocolate: add 1-2 cups chocolate chips to chocolate cake mix.
  4. Chippers: add 1-2 cups chocolate chips (or butterscotch, peanut butter, toffee, mint-chocolate chips, etc.) to white, yellow, or chocolate chip cake mix.
  5. Coconut-Almond: add 1 cup shredded coconut and 1 teaspoon almond extract to a white cake mix.
  6. Banana Spice: add 1/2 cup mashed banana and 1/2 chopped pecans to a spice cake mix.
  7. Pecan Delight: add 1 cup chopped pecans to pecan cake mix and garnish with a pecan half on each cookie.
  8. M&M: add 1-2 cups M&M candies (or Reeseā€™s pieces, toffee bits, candy bar bits, etc.) to white or yellow cake mix.
  9. Christmas: white cake mix with the red and green candied cherries for Christmas. Just chop the candied cherries really small. Nuts are optional.
  10. Fruit cake cookies: Spice cake mix, candied cherries, raisins, chopped walnuts
  11. Peppermint: white cake mix. Crush peppermints really fine, almost a dust, and add. OR Andes mint cookies: chocolate cake mix with crushed Andes mints. You can also sprinkle some of the crushed mints on the top of the cookies half way through baking.
  12. *One thing you might want to do with the icing, depending on how stiff you would like it... add some powdered sugar (just a little at a time) or cocoa (for chocolate icings) to make it a little stiffer. I personally like more of a 'hard' frosting on my cakes and cookies, but it just personal opinion.
