Cake Mix Cookies
1 box of cake mix with pudding if none, add box of instant pudding
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 cup oil or butter
1 cup of whatever you want or have on hand: chocolate or other flavored chips, nuts, M&Ms, crushed candy bits, raisins. Be creative! If using a white cake mix you may want crushed toffee or butterscotch chips; if chocolate mix, chocolate chips and nuts. A tsp. of flavored extract can enhance the flavor. I've used chocolate mix, mint extract, and chocolate chips.
Drop by teaspoons on baking sheet and bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes.
Makes 3 or 4 dozen. Will look underbaked and puffy when done, but let sit for about 10 minutes to set before lifting off. They'll be crisp on outside and chewy inside.
Ideas: Spice cake mix, and nuts; lemon cake mix and lemon zest and drizzle with icing. Many, many possibilities.
