"These are pretty good cookies. I prefer a crispier cookie, but great if you like a softer cookie."

"This is not really a recipe for "homemade" cookies. Once you use a store-bought mix, it's not homemade anymore."

"I just doubled the recipe, having not located a 9-oz. cake mix. A quick way to make cookies and they're so good! Kids should love them; but this adult does too!"

"9 oz cake mixes are hard to come by in out area, so I use half of a regular cake mix.

I mix the ingredients up, bag them and take motorhoming. Our favorite add on is the butterscotch chips. I've also used raisins."
