Step 2 mix cake mix, nuts, stir to coat nuts, add vegetable oil, and eggs together in a bowl until dough is smooth. Roll in confectioners sugar before dropping 1 to 2 tablespoons batter per cookie onto a prepared baking sheet.

Step 3 Bake in the preheated oven until cooked through, 6 to 10 minutes. Cool cookies on baking sheet for about 5 minutes; transfer to a sheet of waxed paper to cool completely.

Note: These Cookies will never look ‘done’ as they don’t brown up like a traditional cookie does. You may use any cake flavor you like to combine with any other flavors you like to combine; i.e. lemon poppy seed, chocolate chips and fudge frosting. Frost or don’t frost to your heart content.

Always stir in nuts, berries, or other additions in the cake mix before adding moisture to make sure the add in stay evenly distributed in the batter. Make what you want they are a great tread for emergency entertainment needs for children or adults.
