You know when you want a treat REAL QUICK and have zero patience for gourmet-style stuff? This recipe is perfect for one of those moments. And yes -- i'm cheating. These beauties are made with 3 basic ingredients only, they key one being (don't judge!) cake-mix from a box. They come together in no time, and within 15 minutes you'll have a batch of these insanely flavored and delicious cookies.
Down to the nitty-gritty —in these ravishing pink little discs, I have used a strawberry cake mix. You'll find plennnnnnty of other varieties --- orange, lemon, ginger-spice, vanilla, chocolate, carrot-cake, and much much more. Literally any of these can be used to make cake mix cookies, and that's the cookie flavor you'll get! Amazing, huh?
Now -- the two ingredients aside from cake mix are eggs, and oil. And that's it. Smoosh them together till you have a dough, scoop onto a baking sheet, bake for 10-12 minutes, and that's literally it..... you have cheater's cookies; crisp edges, and an oooey-gooey center :D.
1 box strawberry-flavored cake mix
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 cup add-ins (optional)
Preheat oven to 180.C. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, and it set aside.
In a large bowl, mix together cake mix, eggs, and oil with a fork or spoon until smooth and all ingredients are combined.
Mix in your add-ins until evenly incorporated.
With a metal tablespoon or a cookie scoop, portion the dough onto the prepared cookie sheet about 6cm apart. Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until lightly golden at the edges.
Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheet for 3-4 minutes, before transferring to a wire rack
