Use cake mix as a base for the cookie dough to bake homemade cookies in a very short time, almost effortlessly. Because of this, it pays to know how to do in case you need a quick dessert for guests, bake sales or important dinners. Of course, you can use the recipe for when you really want some chocolate cookies, but do not have enough time to make them from scratch. Choose the cake mix that suits the taste of cookies you want.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease the baking tray.
Mix the oil, eggs and cake mix in medium bowl. If you wish, add oatmeal plain or flavored, raisins, dried cranberries, nuts or chocolate chips.
Place dough on a baking sheet, leaving two or three inches between cookies.
Bake for 10-12 minutes or until lightly browned. Let cool one or two minutes on baking sheet before removing.
