I have a cookie recipe that uses a boxed cake mix. It's simple. Set your oven to 350 degrees. While the oven is preheating mix ONLY 1/2 cup of vegetable oil and 2 eggs to your boxed cake mix. Place dough onto an ungreased cookie sheet, about a tablespoon each and bake for 8-10 minutes.
You can add chocolate chips, nuts, raisins, etc. I have also experimented with different flavored boxed cake mix.
I think my mom found this recipe in a Dear Heloise column a long time ago. She taught me how to make them.
Good luck, and if you try the recipe let me know how they came out.
