Cookies are pretty much the easiest thing you could bake up in pinch, but what makes these cookies even easier? Vanilla cake mix. These cookies were soft, chewy and not overly sweet, surprisingly. The cinnamon really cuts into the sweetness of the cake mix and balances out all the flavors.

How To Make super simple oatmeal raisin cookies

  • 1
    Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a large bowl, whisk together all the dry ingredients. Then add all the wet ingredients. Stir until a thick, sticky cookie dough forms. On an ungreased cookie sheet, drop a tablespoonful of dough leaving about an inch of space between each. Bake for about 12 minutes or until the edges are slightly golden. Transfer immediately to a cooling rack. Try to let cool completely and enjoy with some warm milk or tea!
