DW can't believe just how good they were, and that they basically came from a cake mix! Super moist and very flavorful. It made 25 large cookies, none left over!!
I've been craving lemon desserts lately. I'm trying these for sure this week. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

Here is a new one I made today.

I used a "cherry chip" cake mix, and added about a 1/4 cup chopped marischino cherries, about 1 cup of dark chocolate chips, and 1 tsp vanilla. They are not too bad but they are missing something and I'm not sure what. Maybe more cherries or some almond flavor.....

I think the almond flavor would be a good one to try, and I agree pecans would go good with it, or maybe some walnuts.
Maybe even some cherry liquor...

Did the cake mix cookies today. Delish!

I used orange cake mix, 2 eggs, 1/2 cup oil, 1 cup white baking chips, 1/2 cup chopped nuts, 1 tsp. freshly grated orange zest. Baked at 350F for 12 minutes. Omigosh! Magnificent.

Came out with about 2 1/2 dozen 3-inch cookies. There will not be many left by tomorrow.

Gonna play with the concept. That is, white cake mix, cherry extract, chopped maraschino cherries and chopped semi-sweet/bitter chocolate. Well?

Why not take this idea and run with it?

That is what I have been doing and it is great fun!

You will love the cherry/dark chocolate! I made those Sunday but used a cherry cake mix! Delish! They taste better after they have sat and cooled for about an hour. Flavors are more pronounced.

Tonight I'm going to try either carrot cake mix and I think I cream cheese frosting OR a white cake mix with crushed pineapple and orange zest.
