These cookies are SO easy and I compare them to sugar cookies. They are a bit sweeter, but you can frost them, add different flavors, top them with chocolate chips, coconut...whatever your taste!
I also like them because they taste great all by themselves...for the "I-don't-have-time-to-bake" times! This cost me about $1.35 for the whole batch with Walmart standards:)
Here is what you need to get started:
-1 box of cake mix (I love the yellow best, but this is white. White is sweeter.)
-1/2 cup of oil
Guess what you do? Just mix them together, drop some onto a cookie sheet and bake at 350 for about 15 minutes! WOW! Shortest recipe ever!
Here is what they look like when you drop them in spoonfuls:
I made 23 cookies with this and they were a decent size. The thing to remember is that you don't really want them to turn golden brown. They can change from perfectly done to burnt in a jiffy!
I gently "touch" the top of the cookie to see if it is hard enough. You don't want a gooey cookie or one that breaks, but they aren't as good when they are dark brown. I find that if I take them out when they are just slightly soft and leave them on the cookie sheet for 3 minutes or so, that they are perfect!
Here is what they look like when they are "done".
They are just ever-so-slightly golden colored. Even though the mix was white when I started, the egg gave it this golden color, not really the result of browning much.
Anyway, I would LOVE it if you shared your easy cookie recipes! I have to make a bunch for my aunt's benefit next month! :)
Thanks again for looking and I hope you enjoyed this post! Don't forget to pin me and share on Facebook!
