I found a recipe for cake mix cookies on one of those "10 DIY Food Hacks YOU NEED RIGHT NOW" lists and it just sounded to good to be true. Cookies in 20 minutes? I just didn't know about that.
But it works. I made cake mix cookies at home and then again in the Test Kitchen because I was so impressed with them. They're really good - especially the chocolate ones! The texture is great - they're not as dense as normal cookies, and the middles are nice and soft.
One box of cake mix is enough to make 24 cookies - enough to satisfy even the strongest of sweet tooths. :D
∆ 1/2 cup vegetable oil
∆ 2 eggs
∆ one 15 oz box cake mix
And that's it! Super easy.
For maximum convenience, I recommend using 2 baking pans so you can cook them all at one time. :D
