Busy Week Cake Mix Cookies

Servings: 2 dozen

Ingredients

  • 1 box 15 to 18 ounces cake mix (see variations for flavors)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • Combine the cake mix, eggs, and oil in a large mixing bowl and beat with an electric mixer at medium speed until well blended, about 2 minutes.
  • Form the dough into balls a little smaller than a golf ball size and place them 2 inches apart on 2 ungreased baking sheets.
  • Bake until very lightly browned at the edges, 10 to 12 minutes. Allow to cool completely before removing from the baking sheets.
