Here is the recipe that I use for cake mix cookies.
1 pkg cake mix
2 T water
1/4c softened butter
Mix all the ingredients. Heat oven to 375degrees. Roll dough into balls and place on a ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 8 to 10 minutes.
*Our variation for these is right when they came out of the oven we sprinkled crushed candy canes on the cookies.
