Cake Mix Cookies

If you've ever had unexpected company call and say they're dropping by later and find yourself without a snack to offer them, you need this recipe. It takes about 5 minutes to mix up and about 30 minutes for the entire batch to bake. It's so easy!

You'll need:

1 cake mix
1 teas baking powder
2 eggs
1/2 oil
1 cup of "mix ins" (chocolate chips, nuts, dried fruit, etc)

In a mixing bowl, stir the cake mix and baking powder together. Then add the eggs and oil and mix until well blended. Stir in the mix ins. Drop by rounded spoonfuls on ungreased cookie sheets. (I use a Pampered Chef scoop for this). Bake at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes. Cool on baking sheets for 5 minutes, then remove to wire racks.

Here's the beauty of this recipe. You can use whatever cake mix and mix ins you have on hand. For this batch I used white chocolate chips and dried cranberries. Yum!

Chocolate cake mix with peanut butter chips is delicious. Yellow cake mix with toffee bits and pecans is simply scrumptious. Red velvet and white chocolate - oh my goodness! You can create your own combination and have a tasty snack warm from the oven in 30 minutes. Pour a glass of milk and enjoy!

This recipe makes about 3 1/2 dozen cookies.
