    Tasty and so quick to make, for an after school treat! Try adding a teaspoon of cinnamon and raisins instead of chocolate chips, yummy  -  12 Apr 2016


    SO EASY! I used Pilsbury Classic Yellow cake mix (w/ pudding in the mix) and they were delicious! The cookies were even better the next day. Be careful not to over cook them. I took mine out the second I saw a very light golden color around the sides. I let them continue cooking on the baking sheet until they were cool enough to sample- then off the the cooling rack. Betty Crocker Extra Moist cake mix has worked well for me too.  -  27 Feb 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    It might not be the BEST cookie you've ever had but it probably will be the easiest you've ever made. It also works well with a chocolate cake mix, which my family prefers. ---- I no longer own an electric beater and found that this recipe can be done with a big spoon. Just cut the butter in with a knife and fork first.  -  24 Nov 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
