These cookies are so easy to make and everybody loves them. It's fun to experiment with different cake flavors, too. We've made these with coconut cake mix and added coconut flakes as well.

These cookies are easy to prepare and MUCH easier to enjoy. If you love a gooey butter cake with the gooey layer... this is the cookie version of that layer. At first, we thought we underbaked the cookies, but we were wrong - they are perfect. We love the crunchiness on the outside and the gooey inside. Powdered sugar is the perfect topping. Everyone is going to love these! Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
