If you want to bake without wheat try googling gluten free recipes. At allrecipes.com there is an explaination of how to use alternative flours. I make cake mix cookies all of the time. They are generally nice soft cookies. You can use any cake mix. Hope they turn out well.

I'm not sure it was exactly the same recipe (recipe is at home), but I tried this at Christmas w/ chocolate cake mix and it was AWESOME!

This is Craig's wife, Karen. He's not home to post but I was just flipping thru and saw this post/question. Be careful about using old baking mixes. I read something once that some kind of toxic mold can grow in them after they get past their expiration date. I vaguely remember the article or post saying it tasted, smelled and/or looked not quite right but the woman went ahead and used it and made her son really sick - as in needing to go to the hospital sick.

You know I read something too...But the one I read was about pancake mix. It sounded pretty bad, but I didn't pay too much attention because we usually use up these things pretty quickly. Maybe we need to google it and see what is what.

Karen again. Actually I did Google it after I posted. It was in a Dear Abby column about the pancake mix but there was also another incident reported with brownie mix and the person died. Both had a food and/or mold allergy history. I'd still be careful though, you don't always know what you are allergic to until after you've had the reaction and, for a couple dollars wasted on an old mix, getting sick or making somebody else sick just isn't worth it.
