Before making these cookies I read the reviews and decided to make my own adjustments and the cookies came out perfectly! Oven should be 350. Use 1 Cup butter omit the shortening use 2 EGGS and cream them with the butter brown sugar and water. Follow the recipe as directed. Use 1 TEASPOON per cookie they really spread out if you use too much batter. Make these adjustments and you will really be pleased with the results! Read More

Nice texture. Moist. Very sweet. Made these because I had an extra box mix on hand but I don't think I would buy a mix just to make these. I could definitely taste the cake mix. Loads of people at work loved these though. Read More

This was excellent. I used peanut butter chips and devil's food cake. They don't spread very much so you might want to flatten cookies slightly if you are making balls with a scoop like I did. Read More

EXCELLENT! I followed reviewers' suggestion and used 1 cup butter instead of the margarine & shortening and 2 eggs instead of just one. Also I cooked it at 350 degrees for 9 minutes. DELICIOUS!!!!! Thanks for this recipe! I finally hit jackpot after looking for so long! And to think you use cake mix! Read More

These are delicious with the perfect mix of chewy and just a bit of crunch. I've made cookies with cake mixes before that were ok but these were a hit! I made the suggested changes of using 1 cup of butter and 2 eggs and I baked them at 350 for 10 minutes. Read More
