Cake Mix Cookies

  • 1 pkg. cake mix (any kind will work)
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 c. olive oil

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Mix the cake mix, egg and oil until well blended. Drop the dough by rounded teaspoonfuls onto an ungreased cookie sheet -- allowing about 2 inches between each cookie.

Bake the cookies for 8-10 minutes. Allow them to cool on the cookie sheet for 1-2 minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool. Store the cookies tightly covered.

Suggestions: Devil's food cake mix is good with about a teaspoon of almond extract added. Yellow cake mix can be spruced up with either vanilla or lemon extract. A half a cup of miniature chocolate chips can be added to just about any cake mix for an unusual and easy chocolate chip cookie. The sky is really the limit!
  • Yields: about 4 dozen cookies
