Right off the bat, here’s the original recipe: http://www.carlyhaslee.com/2012/02/cake-batter-cookies.html

I love cake. I love cookies. I love when they’re combined. I found this recipe through Pintrest, as usual. I was looking for something really easy to bake today. I mean, REALLY easy. And this recipe was just perfect.

You start with a box of Pillsbury Funfetti cake mix. Add 2 eggs and 1/3 cup of oil.

Mix well until you get this:

Make sure you get all of the dry powdery stuff all mix in. Then, scoop 1 inch balls of dough onto a cookie sheet like this:

These cookies hold their shape pretty well, so they’ll look almost exactly like how you scoop them out. You might want to use a cookie scoop, like I did, if you care that they look pretty. Put the cookie sheet in the oven, which should be preheated to 375 degrees F. Bake for about 6 minutes. The original baker said they don’t let the cookies brown underneath, as is their personal preference. After 6 minutes in the oven, my cookies had a nice medium brown underside. I don’t mind, but if you do, try lowering the baking time a bit. Let the cookies cool on the cookie sheet for a few minutes, then move them to a rack to cool.

These were seriously the easiest cookies to make. And they are delicious! One thing worth mentioning, is that this recipe doesn’t make a lot of cookies. Using a 1 inch scoop, I got 36 cookies. So, if you’re planning on making these for a birthday party, or another holiday, you may want to double the recipe. But I promise, it will still be super duper easy!
