Different Cookies from Cake Mixes

This afternoon, I spent less than 40 minutes making 3 batches of cookies, all using cake mix. I used all white cake mix, but you can use yellow or chocolate if you like depending on the type of cookies you want to make.

The first batch was just plain raisin cookies. Add 2 eggs (beaten) and 1/2 cup olive oil (not virgin, just plain cooking olive oil. Beat those two ingredients together in a large enough bowl. I do not use a mixer, just a big fork. Add half the box of cake mix. Stir well, then add the other half box of cake mix. Add as many raisins as you think you'd like. About 1/2 or more cups is fine. Place dough in a covered container or plastic bag and pop into the refrigerator.

You can bake them a couple of hours later, or the next day. Form into balls about the size of a small walnut, and place on parchment paper or lightly greased cookie sheet. Bake about 8-12 minutes at 375 degrees F depending on how brown you want the cookies to be. I like using parchment paper as I just remove all the cookies at once onto a wire rack, (parchment and all) and immediately add an already "loaded" new sheet of parchment onto the cookie sheet and into the oven they go. Making cookies never happens so fast.

I put together a batch of chocolate chip cookies following the same procedure, and they'll be baked the same way. The third batch was chock full of finely chopped pecans also following the same procedure and they'll also be baked tomorrow morning in the same manner.

If you don't have time to bake them tomorrow, place them in an airtight container and freeze. Thaw out when you're ready to bake and you can have nice freshly baked cookies anytime.

This is easy enough for even the least experienced cook to make a lot of different kinds of cookies in a very short time. The cookies can be frosted if you like, but they don't need anything else to make them delicious. All the best.

You just got my vote. This is what I need for when my grandaughters come over to visit. At ages 3 and 5, they like doing things like this. Thank you-joanie
