White Cake Mix Cookies

A few years ago not too many people had heard of using a cake mix to make a simple but delicious cookie. The thought was you either had to make them from scratch, buy cookie dough in the refrigerated section of the grocery store or there were a couple cookie 'mixes' on the market (not like now where there are 20 different cookie mixes you can buy). Someone, at some point used a cake mix to make cookies and the idea caught on.

Now, almost everyone knows about this quick and easy tip - but just in case you don't, this one is for you! Quick and easy cookies from a mix. I've posted this before (as well as my chocolate, lemon and snicker doodle varieties - you can use the SEARCH bar to the right to browse if you wish) but a good recipe is worth posting again. Enjoy!

White Cake Mix Cookies

1 dry white cake mix
1/3 c oil
2 eggs
1/4 c flour *if* it's too soft to hold it's shape

Mix the cake mix, oil and eggs. If it's too soft to make small balls add just a bit of flour, no more than 1/4 cup. Form into balls, flatten slightly and bake on parchment in pre-heated 350 degree oven. Cool slightly and frost to decorate.
