I love cakes. Period. What's almost better than that? Besides the smell of tanning oil in the morning? Cake mix COOKIES. So go buy one and follow along. First you need these things:
Instead of following the cake mix directions, mix the cake mix with 2 eggs and 1/3 c. of veggie oil. Roll into 1 inch balls and flatten with a cup dipped in flour.
Bake at 350 degrees for 5-8 minutes, depending on your oven. (Mine is hot so it takes about 6 min.)
Let them cool (or stick the in the freezer for 2 minutes if you want to eat one reallllly bad). Decorate with your favorite icing (I chose Funfetti...see the theme?) and sprinkle with whatever you want!
You can use whatever cake mix you want! The sky is the limit. If your dad likes red velvet, buy that cake mix, slap some cream cheese icing on it and another cookie on top and call it a red velvet sammy. Got a baby shower coming up? Throw some blue food coloring in a white cake mix and call em baby cookies. Love carrot cake but don't like all the calories? Well too bad, they're still there, but it seems like you eat less b/c cookies are small, right? Buy a carrot cake mix, slather it with cream cheese, and you've reinvented the wheel...or the cookie...
