I love making everything from scratch. I gives me a sense of accomplishment. That being said, sometimes I ain’t got time for that! So when my toddlers are pulling on me begging for cookies when I want to do is sit down, I have a “go to” short and sweet cookie recipe. Sometime, long ago, my mother found a recipe for cake mix cookies. I don’t know where, and I am not even sure that I am making them the same anymore. But here is what I do:
Cake Mix Cookies
1 box of cake mix
1/3 cup of vegetable oil
1/3 cup of water
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Mix all the ingredients in medium mixing bowl. Spoon cookie batter, about 1 tablespoon, out on greased cookie sheet. Bake for 10 to 14 minutes. Cool on cookie rack. Enjoy!
This recipe is so quick and easy. It is also open for interpretation. Feel free to experiment with your favorite cake mix. I like making my cakes from scratch but I always have a few boxes of cake mix in my pantry for emergencies. I have also tossed chocolate chips or marshmallows in the batter as well to add a little extra flavor. Great versatile recipe that allows you to enjoy your cookies within 20 minutes!
