Cake Mix Cookies

I don't know if any of you have seen these. . . Seems to me like something that has been around for a long time, and I am just now catching on to. They are a great treat to bake when you are in a rush, and they turn out every time. Also, there are endless possibilities with these as well so get creative!

Makes 2 dozen


1 box cake mix (any flavor)
1/3 cup oil
2 eggs


Pour cake mix into a mixing bowl. Add oil & eggs, and mix well.
Roll into 1-inch balls and place on ungreased pan (I flatten them just a touch).
Bake at 350 for about 7 minutes (adjust accordingly).

A few extra ideas to get you going:

-Make ice-cream sandwiches by putting your favorite ice-cream in between two cookies. Wrap individually with plastic wrap and freeze. (lemon cake with strawberry ice-cream, devil's food cake with rocky road. . . )

-Make home-made oreos by using a chocolate cake mix with white frosting in the middle of two cookies.

-Rainbow cake mix topped with rainbow chip frosting.

-Add chocolate chips, nuts, raisins. . .
