Another quick-n-easy, super yummy recipe! :)
Just 3 basic ingredients plus a bonus one for fun. All ingredients you probably have in your cupboards right now.
They're light, fluffy with a tiny bit of chewiness, and you can customize them anyway you wish! Your kids could whip these up for you.
Cake Mix Cookies
1 box cake mix (18.25 oz)
1/2 cup vegetable oil
just shy of 1/4 cup mix-in, if desired
NOTE: Never add more than 1/4 cup mix-ins total. For example, if you're adding chocolate chips AND nuts, combine them to equal just shy of 1/4 cup. NOT 1/4 cup each.
Preheat oven to 350*F.
In a medium-sized bowl, stir together cake mix, eggs & oil.
If desired, add mix-in(s) too.
Stir just until completely mixed - don't over mix.
Roll dough into balls, about 1" or just smaller, and place on ungreased cookie sheets.
Bake at 350*F for approx 10-12 minutes. (My oven takes 11 minutes)
Cool for 1-2 minutes on the cookie sheet, then remove cookies to a cooling rack.
Once cooled, store in an airtight container 3-5 days.
- who, with this perfect sit & beg (LOL!), eventually got a plain vanilla cookie. Happy dog!
NOTES ABOUT MIX-INs:
We like to use mini-chips or chopped nuts for mix-ins. Any flavor you like will be fine. We've had some fun combining chips & cake mix flavors: chocolate cake mix w/mint chips or crushed candy canes, butter pecan cake mix with butterscotch chips & crushed pecans, lemon cake mix with vanilla chips, french vanilla cake mix with walnuts & craisins...
Anything that sounds good to you will be delicious! Just make sure your TOTAL mix-in(s) are just shy of 1/4 cup!
Anymore than that will overwhelm the dough & the cookies will be runny & flat.
Have fun with it!
