In this case we were out so we used the Veggie Eggs, I suppose I should call em Cage Free, LOL. Two of them are almost like three regular large eggs, so I thought this might account for the extra moisture.
Baking is not my strong suite, so I am not surprised when I have to adjust a recipe because it is too thick or too thin. I usually figure it is something I did not the recipe, and it usually is! LOL.
ok on the veg. eggs, not sure what the point is. could have been your problem. i find the other extreme sometimes, dough to stiff.

Cake mix cookies are one of the best ideas ever! And totally versatile. For kids, I like to make cookies from that brightly colored tutti frutti cake mix-- they come out really cute.

Depending on the taste of the batter, I might even be tempted to add a bit of freshly grated lemon zest.

Actually I meant to type "orange" zest, but the lemon might be better. There are no accidents.

Going to try that with the lemon cake mix and adding some macadamia nuts.

I thought of that. I might try it next time I make them and see how they come out. Here is a picture of them.
