Cake Mix Cookies

My mom found the recipe for these online somewhere ...they are really easy and great when you're in a hurry, but I am not a huge fan of them if I'm really wanting a good cookie. My daughter had a bake sale at school and I was able to make a ton of cookies easily with little fuss. All you do is take a box of cake mix, any flavor, and add 1/2 cup of vegetable oil and 2 eggs...if you want any nuts or chips in your cookies you add them to the dry mix before adding the oil and eggs. Depending on the size of your cookie , you can get about 18 -24, or at least that's what I usually get. I line a cookie sheet with foil, spray some oil, and bake them at 350 degrees until they just start to brown. I remove them right away onto a rack as they crisp easily, and I like softer cookies.

Meeso there are times when you want to spend time in kitchen and then there are times when one want to have easy in the kitchen.
So on those occasions these fast cookies are a real blessing :-)

~ Happy cook, Even though I love to cook and have a food blog, sometimes I really don't want to spend a lot of time in the kitchen, and sometimes I really hate to bake...these were a lifesaver!
