Recipe: Cake Batter Cookie

Happy Tuesday everyone! When I recapped my weekend yesterday, I completely forgot to mention the last minute cookies I decided to bake on Sunday afternoon. Every now and then I get the urge to bake, but that can be dangerous when it's just Stephen and I here to eat the sweets. Well anyway, these cookies are amazing and were so easy to make. Next time I need to bring a baked good for a party or food gift, I will be bringing these. Very few ingredients and little time.

1 (18.25 oz.) box cake mix
1 tsp. baking powder
2 eggs
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips

1- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
2-In a medium bowl, stir together the cake mix and baking powder. Add eggs and oil, then mix until well blended. (It was a bit crumbly for me so I used my hands to really mix it well- it's not as smooth as typical dough.)
3-Stir in chocolate chips, or your choice of additions. Drop by rounded spoonfuls onto cookie sheets.
4- Bake for 10 minutes in the preheated oven. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheets for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.

They do look amazing too and while mine are not in perfect round form, they are at least the same nice, light color. I think they would be great to bring a tray to a super bowl party this weekend too! I tried a Martha Stewart cake cookie years ago but I remember it being very involved and not so simple. Have you ever tried a cake batter cookie? I will be sending these to the office with Stephen today so we don't eat every single one! Hope y'all have a great day! xo.

Yum! I made chocolate crinkle cookies last night using cake batter. They turned out just okay. They taste good, but I've made better batches ;) These look absolutely delicious though!
