I was trying to be a little adventurous and find something to create with a box of cake mix I had on hand. So, I created cookies from the cake mix. I used the wikihow.com article How to Make Cake Mix Cookies:7 Steps.
This was so EASY, that I would say, let the kids help stir that mix and plop these on to the pan and watch them bulk up. You can sub out the pecans for walnuts or almonds. Also, you can add semi-sweet chocolate chips (which I will try next time).
YUMMO!!! Good luck and please let me know if you created these and included any of your own ingredients! Enjoy!
Cake Mix Cookies
1 (18.25 oz.) box of chocolate fudge cake mix (I used Betty Crocker’s Super Moist cake mix)
1 egg (If you add any more eggs, these will be more cake-like that’s why there’s only 1 egg included)
1/2 cup vegetable oil
2 to 3 Tablespoons water (the article I used didn’t show any water, but boy, I couldn’t have mixed this without it!!)
3/4 cup pecans
1 tsp. vanilla (optional, if not using chocolate mix)
12 oz. chocolate chips (optional)
Preheat oven to 350ºF. Prepare cookie sheets by spraying with non-stick spray or lining with baking paper.
Spoon teaspoonfuls of the mixture onto cookie sheets, about a dozen cookies per sheet. They will spread when baking, so leave some room between each cookie.
Bake for 8 to 10 minutes.
Allow the cookies to cool on the sheet for about 2 minutes before removing them to a wire rack.
Let cool and then take off cookie sheet using a spatula. Place onto a wire rack to cool completely. Serve warm or at room temperature.
