And this is how the recipe looks when written out according to your directions.

Coconut-Cashew-White Chocolate Chip Cookies

Preheat oven to 350F.

One box of coconut cake mix
2 eggs
2 tablespoons water (or coconut milk) to moisten dough
cup vegetable oil
2 tablespoons vanilla extract
cup shredded coconut
cup toasted chopped cashews
1 cup of white chocolate chips

Dropped them onto a cookie sheet for 12 to 15 minutes, until they are golden brown.

The recipe makes approximately 4 dozen cookies.

For those who want to paste and copy.
That's about it, Addie. I didn't really measure the add-ins. I just emptied what was left of a bag of white chips and threw in a handful of coconut and whatever cashews I had. The quantities of those ingredients are pretty much up to the person making the cookies.

There is one error. It says two tablespoons. That should read "two teaspoons of vanilla. Sorry.

I just corrected the vanilla error. All better now.

Of course. Non-mothers never do such things

Coconut-Cashew-White Chocolate Chip Cookies - TNT Alix asked about my recipe for the above cookies, but there's nothing magic about them. I just threw them together using cake mix. What I did was to use one box of coconut cake mix, 2 eggs, a couple of tablespoons water to moisten up the dough, 1/2 cup vegetable oil and some vanilla extract. Then I added some shredded coconut, some toasted chopped cashews, and a cup of white chocolate chips. Dropped them onto a cookie sheet and baked them at 350F for about 12 to 15 minutes, until they were golden brown. As for the amount of coconut and cashews, I didn't really measure. I guess there was about 3/4 cup of each. The recipe made about 4 dozen cookies. They were born out of necessity. I had intended to make another type of cake mix cookie but I didn't have any yellow cake mix. Thought I did but didn't, so had to improvise with what else I had on hand. They're great. 3 stars 1 reviews
