Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  • Cream margarine and brown sugar together in a bowl using an electric mixer. Add 1/2 of the cake mix, water, and egg; blend thoroughly. Stir in remaining cake mix, oats, pecans, and bourbon.

  • Drop batter by teaspoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets.

  • Bake in the preheated oven on the top racks until edges are set and golden, about 10 minutes.

Cook's Notes:

Any bourbon works for this.

The bottoms of the cookies will burn if cooked on the bottom oven rack.
