God didn't promise days without pain, laughter without sorrow, sun without rain, but He did promise strength for the day, comfort for the tears and light for the way. - Anon

When we had the farewell for my aunt a week or so ago I made three different kinds of cookies and a toffee bar. The most popular to my surprise was not the chocolate chip cookie but the cake mix cookies and I had several requests for the recipe so I am posting it here.
These are super simple and easy to make and there wasn't a single cookie left on the plate before the evening was done.
Cake Mix Cookies
1 Cake Mix
1/3 cup vegetable oil
You can use whatever flavor of cake mix you like, although it works best with a "pudding in the mix" or a "super moist" cake mix. Pictured is a devils food cake mix and a yellow cake mix because that's what I had on hand. I am partial to the lemon cake mix with an orange cream frosting.
Mix together with a spoon. Shape into balls, place on a greased cookie sheet. Cook for 8 minutes at 375 degrees. Let cool. Frost.
To get a uniform shape and size I used a small ice cream scoop (size 70ml).
These are also good with a scoop of ice cream in the middle. A homemade ice cream sandwich.
