How to Make Cookies Simply Made With A Cake Mix


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Beat eggs, vanilla, shortening, and half of the cake mix, beat til light and fluffly, stir in rest of cake mix. Add raisins, nuts, chocolate chips or whatever you like in them.
  3. Drop by teaspoon onto an ungreased sheet pan.
    Bake 10-12 minutes.

    You can mix in a food processor than roll them into balls and bake. (that's what I did)
  4. I added crushed dry roasted peanuts crushed, juice of one orange, dried cranberries and a few chocolate chips. Next time I make em, well who knows what I'll add ?!
