Cake Mix Cookies
This is my go to cookie recipe.
Especially for school parties and functions.
It's made with cake mix. So it is cheap and the possibilities are endless. Usually for Valentine's Day parties I use red velvet cake mix and strawberry cake mix to make pink and red cookies. Christmas time you can add in red and green m&m's. Halloween you can make these dark chocolate cookies, maybe with peanut butter chips. My son's class loves when I take the lemon cake mix and add in lemon extract.
1 box of cake mix (unprepared)
1/2 cup vegetable oil
that is it. Mix and put teaspoonful on a cookie sheet bake 8-10 min at 350.
For the above cookies I used Devil's Food cake mix and chocolate chips.
The key to these cookies is taking them out of oven before they are fully cooked and let them continue cooking on the cookie sheet. These cookies should be soft (and they stay soft too).
Tip: Stock up on cake mixes when they go on sale for .99 cents or less. Lots of recipes call for cake mixes. Some of the most frequently called for cake mixes are spice cake, yellow cake, chocolate cake and white cake mix.
