Oatmeal Walnut Cookies (a la Andrea)

  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 18.5-ounce package yellow cake mix
  • 2/3 cup quick cooking oats
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped walnuts or chocolate chips
  • Granulated sugar
  1. Preheat oven to 375 F.
  2. Prepare baking sheets with non-stick spray or line them with parchment paper.
  3. In a large bowl, mix butter and eggs until light and fluffy.
  4. Stir in cake mix, quick oats, and walnuts.
  5. Roll dough into walnut-sized balls.
  6. Place cookies onto the prepared baking sheet, and flatten slightly with the bottom of a glass that has been buttered and dipped in granulated sugar.
  7. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until golden brown.
  8. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
Note: A tip on storing cake mix cookies: Depending on the type of cake mix you use, these cookies may dry out after two days. To prevent this, store them in an airtight container with a piece of bread. For some reason this keeps the cookies just as fresh and moist as can be.
