"My husband who usually passes on cookies, went back for more! The only thing different I did was to use Butter Pecan cake mix. Adding chopped nuts in the future may be another option."

"I've made several versions of cake mix cookies, and we always enjoy them. No major changes to this one, except that I omitted the raisins because I didn't have any on hand. They'd be great with Spice cake mix and Craisins. They are good as is, but we took them over the top by sandwiching two of them together with some store bought cream cheese frosting that I added some cinnamon to."

"I made these and they were great. My husband loved them and these were keepers. I also made a batch with pineapple upside down mix with the zest of one orange. They were marvelous!"

"CASNIP if u don't have applesauce on hand why not make some? Peel, chop, cook and mash 2 1/2 to 3 medium apples for 3/4 cup. Not sure if it's necessary but I'd cool it in the freezer in order to avoid cooking any of the egg."
