I got this recipe from a relative many years ago. It is a "fix in a hurry" treat. I have probably used every cake mix flavor over the years. This reciple works with anything. Get creative and see what combinations you like the best.

How to Make Debbie's Quick and Easy Cake Mix Cookies


  1. Mix on low speed until all ingredients are well blended and drop by spoonfuls onto a cookie sheet lightly sprayed with Pam.
  2. Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 10-12 minutes. Let sit a few minutes on the cookie sheet then cool on a wire rack.
  3. * My very favorite cookie dough mix is made with French Vanilla Cake Mix with Walnuts and Heath Bar Toffee bits but any combination will work fine. I also love Yellow Cake Mix with Chocolate Chips and Pecans.Be experimental to find your own favorites.
