"definitely not a good cookie recipe. The batter was very crumbly and the walnuts and chocolate chips would not stick. And after baking, they were very grainy. Baked 2 Pans, flattening and cooking longer for the 2nd round, but both batches came out unpleasant. Don't waste your time and money on this recipe!!"

"Pretty good, although I dont normally make cookies with a cake mix. I added little caramel bits along with mini chocolate chips and pecans- YUM!"

"If I could give this recipe no stars I would. Worst cookie recipe ever. Complete waste of time and MONEY. As a baker I should have known better. No eggs? No flour? No water? Not even glue could hold these ingredients together."

"I did try to give this recipe FIVE stars, too...but for some reason, it won't let me have more than four today...:)"

"I made this recipe recently with only 1 cup of real mayo, added 1 egg, and a little bit of water, plus a little bit of mint flavoring...I had a bag of chocolate and mint combo chips to add in, and was a fabulous result! They are soft and chewy, minty...really, really good and delicious! This is by far the best cake mix cookie recipe I've tried, and I plan to make up some more of my favorite combinations soon, using different cake mixes and pudding mixes and different "add-in" ingredients. I love this recipe!"

"I don't think I'll make these again. The chips didn't stick in the batter well. Maybe I should have used 'real' mayo instead of Miracle Whip. I love the concept--they were easy and I got the full yield from the recipe. They would be great for kids to make."

"I want to make these cookies, but am wondering if you can use light mayonnaise instead of regular.
