Cake mixes are already sweet so why so much sugar? I wonder if those who have made this found it to be too sweet? I'll probably reduce the sugar but still wonder about the degree of sweetness.

Is it possible to subs some of the oil , using applesauce? Seems like a lot of oil

The cake mix includes many ingredient. making these cookies very easy to make. Quick, easy, and good. Separate dough adding lemon or almond flavor to make a variety of cookies. Add raisins, dried cranberries, or cherry for more variations.

Cake mixes do not seem to weigh 18.25 oz anymore. They seem to be cut down to between 15 and 16.5 oz.

There is nothing better than the Quaker oats recipe on the back of the box. My family loves both pecans and raisins and we love them soft.

These have a good flavor and are simple to make, however mine were crumbly. Does anyone know what to do to prevent them from breaking up?

I made this with a lemon cake mix and it turned out great.

I made these cookies, but I used a greman chocolate cake mix instead of the yellow. I aslo added another egg and a half a cup of chocolate chips and my family flipped over them. The next time I want to try a butter pecan cake mix. Yummy!!!!

Does the extra egg stop the crumbles?I was thinking of turning them into sandwich cookies with frosting or PB...

These cookies were just ok. They feel apart taking them off the cookie tray. I feel they need something to keep them more together. Too crumbly.

Let them cool. Use a silpat or parchment paper
