White Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies

I have about a half dozen boxes of Betty Crocker cake mix sitting on my pantry shelf right now. They were on sale a couple months back for $1 each and I bought a bunch since I was getting such a great deal. The only thing is that I don’t make boxed cake very often. The boxes are taking up room and I knew I needed to use them up. I’ve made cake mix cookies before with just three ingredients – cake mix, butter and eggs. This time I wanted to try something a little different. I whipped up a huge batch of these White Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies using a box of French Vanilla cake mix plus a few other ingredients. This recipe makes a huge amount of cookies! I’m happy to say they turned out delicious. Maybe even a little addicting too. It’s hard to stop at eating just one!

I don’t care for cookies that are “cake like”. These ones were nice and chewy – the way I like my cookies. Feel free to change up the flavour of cake mix you use or the type of chip. I’m a die hard white chocolate fan so I used a bag of those. I bet it would also be a hit with either chocolate or butterscotch chips.

I need to use up the rest of those boxes of cake mix in my pantry so watch for a few more cake mix recipes! It’s fun to experiment in the kitchen.

Have you ever made cookies with cake mix?
