"I have to give this five stars because my mom created this recipe and gave it the name, "Cookies in a jiffy. I am Clara Hielkema's daughter. She died in 1998 at the age of 92 . She would have been delighted to know her cookies since went on to be published in four cook books and has gone viral on the internet."

"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."
