  • Cake mix cookies are fool-proof.
    Butter Pecan Cookies
    1 yellow or white cake mix
    2 eggs
    ½ cup butter (1 stick)
    1 can (16 oz) Coconut-pecan frosting
    Preheat oven to 350. Mix with a spoon, cake mix, eggs, butter and frosting. Refrigerate dough for2 hours. Drop dough balls onto a lightly greased cookie sheet. (I used a tablespoon to scoop dough, and then rolled it into a ball) Bake 8-12 minutes or till light brown around edges. Remove to rack to cool.

    Macadamia Nut Cookies
    1 yellow or white cake mix
    2 eggs
    1/3 cup vegetable oil
    1 cup white chocolate chips or chunks
    ½ cup chopped macadamia nuts
    Preheat oven to 350. With a spoon, mix cake mix, eggs, And oil together. Stir in white chocolate and nuts. Drop dough balls onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 8-12 minutes or till light golden brown around edges. Remove to rack to cool.

  • Get a bag of Nestle' semi-sweet chocolate chips & follow the Toll House cookies recipe on the bag. If you follow it exactly, your cookies will be good, honest.

  • Bisquick Cookies

    1/2 cup shortening
    1 cup sugar
    2 eggs
    1/3 cup milk
    1 teaspoon vanilla
    2 cups Bisquick
    1 cup nuts, coarsely chopped
    1 cup dates, stoned and cut up or 2 squares of chocolate (2oz) melted

    Cream shortening. Add sugar gradually. Add well beaten eggs, milk and vanilla. Add Bisquick, mix well. Add nuts with dates, or nuts with chocolate as desired. Chill dough. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto greased cooky sheet. Bake 15 minutes in moderately hot oven, 400 F. This makes 4 dozen medium-sized cookies.

  • Kohl's has a great recipe exchange cook book that has recipes that make a lot of them at once. They are pretty simple to follow. The book only costs $5 and goes to the Kohl's Cares for Kids program.
