I forgot I needed to bring a dessert to a Christmas party! I had a spice cake mix and this sounded easy... but I also didn't have any raisins. I chopped up some dried mangos instead. It turned out great. The nut and fruit combination was perfect for Christmas. Thank You!! Read More

All of these similar cake mix cookies are pretty good. But the cake mixes have shrunk to more like 15 oz. This means you need to reduce the oil a bit. Or I've used 2 boxes of mix with 3 extra large eggs and 3/4 to 4/5 c oil. Would be great to update the recipes. I usually add 1/2 to 1 tsp vanilla. For spice cake batter a dash more pumpkin spice (or at least cinnamon). For chocolate cake mix I add a Tbsp or so of cocoa to make it a bit richer and cut sweet/sweet taste. Read More

I make these with some kind of chopped nut (macadamia or almond slivers) and white chocolate chips... It's our all time favorite. And couldn't be easier. Going to make and bring to Paint & Pastries night tonight.:) Read More

Took the advice of other poster and cut back on the oil. I hadn't thought to check the size of the cake mix. Like so many products the sizes of packages are smaller. I also added cinnamon nutmeg and ginger to spice it up. Read More

Super easy to make these cookies turned out with a nice slightly crispy outside and soft inside. I'll definitely make these again! Read More

I love cake mix cookies...they're so versatile. My favorite is carrot cake with raisins or craisins and white chocolate chips. Depending on where they're going I may add nuts either macadamia pecans. or cashews. I always keep extra boxes of cake mix on hand just for quick cookies. Read More

Easy recipe. A new favorite! I would eat all of them if I could get away with it! These remind me of something my grandma would make. I've made this a few times already and have also baked in a 13x9 to make into bar cookies. Read More
