My family raves over the different cookies I make now. Catch the name brand cake mixes on the loss leader sales at 68 cents or less. Put any flavor mix into the bowl and mix in 2 eggs and 1/2 cup of vegetable oil. I like to throw in 6 oz of chocolate chips, and sometimes a couple of tbsp of brown sugar. Drop by spoonfuls onto cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees F for 10 minutes or so.
Every single cookie I have whipped up, they eat them up like candy. Much better than store bought ones, and a hundred times easier than totally by scratch ones, and cheaper. Today I used the BC butter pecan mix and added the chocolate chips. They raved over them, tasted a lot like a fantastic slightly different version of a chocolate chip cookie. I am disabled so this makes me happy because I can get in and out of the kitchen and makes the family happy too!

I tried my first cake mix cookies. BC Devils food Cake mix. They were a BIG hit. (06/01/2006)
My sis in law makes these at Christmas and they are good. I will try this as it sounds good and easy.
Wow, what a great idea. I have always been a better cook than a baker since my hubby doesn't care for sweets (I care for them too much!) but we have two young children now and I'd like to be able to make them homemade cookies but not spend too much time at it. I'm sure they could even help me make these, they sound so simple! (06/02/2006)
I have been making these "cake cookies" for years, my kids love them too! I especially like the cookies made from spice cake mix and strawberry cake mix. (06/02/2006)
It sounds like fun-experimenting with the different flavors and possibilities! (06/04/2006)
I tried these cookies for the first time, using Strawberry cake mix and added white chips. they were delicious! My grandkids loved them. Thanks for the recipe. (06/09/2006)
