I found a similar recipe in the S/D subscription with the following changes: 1 egg, 1/4 C water, 3 T canola oil. These changes could make the mix less sticky. I have yet to try them, but added them to my recipe box for the future.
My grandsons love these cookies. I have made them twice and have found that using Devil's Food cake mix without pudding makes rolling the dough into balls much easier. Using Devil's Food cake mix with pudding, the dough sticks to your hand unless you damped your hands with water. Bottom line--use a cake mix without pudding.
Some changes for less sticky dough. Used 1/4 cup water, 3 tablespoons of oil, and only 1 egg. Work dough well. Spraying Pam on hands also helps.
Love this recipe...have made it a bunch of times. However, made some changes because the original version's dough does come out way too sticky. I use only 1 egg and 3 tablespoons of canola oil. Dough needs to be worked well but much easier to work with. Spraying Pam on your hands helps too. Makes 3 dozen cookies.
After reading the comments here, we have retested this recipe and made some modifications. We took out the water and increased the eggs to two and the oil to 1/2 cup. These changes resulted in much less sticky dough. This recipe here has been corrected. We apologize for any inconvenience. Taste of Home Test kitchen.
