1 box two-layer cake mix, any flavor*
1/2 cup butter, softened
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, combine all ingredients at low speed with an electric mixer until ingredients are thoroughly mixed. If you want to add in things like chocolate chips, candy bits, nuts or oatmeal, now’s the time to add in as little or as much as you like and stir to combine.
Drop dough by rounded teaspoonfuls 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake at 350 degrees for 9 to 12 minutes. Cool for 2 minutes on cookie sheets, then remove to racks to cool.
*If using a chocolate cake mix, add 2 tablespoons of water when mixing first batch of ingredients.
