    justcallmetoni's Note:

    I am occasionally called on mass produce cookies for events and need recipes which deliver homemade results with ease. A handy supply of cake mixes allow me to do just that. This particular recipe combines some elements of my favorite scratch recipes starting with a yellow cake mix. The cookies are slightly crispy on the outside and tender and chewy in the center.

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
    2. 2
      Cream together the butter, shortening, egg, brown sugar and vanilla.
    3. 3
      Add in the cake mix, cinnamon and walnuts until well mixed. Combine in the oatmeal and water. Depending on your mixer you may need to do this by hand.
    4. 4
      Stir in the raisins. The amount of raisins is really a matter of personal taste. If you like raisins, start with 1 cup and decide if you want more. If you love raisins, start with the full amount and add and up to an additional 1/2 cup.
    5. 5
      Place level tablespoons of dough on to a cookie sheet 1 1/2 inches apart. Flatten tops a bit as the cookies retain their shape. That is they do not melt down as some cookies do.
    6. 6
      Bake at for 14 minutes, cookies should be lighted browned at the edges and and pale on top. If you like a crisper cookie, add 2 minutes to the baking time.
    7. 7
      Note: Baking times are for the stated size which yield a nice two-bite sized cookie great for events. If you are making larger cookies, please adjust your baking time accordingly.

      Toni - these are fabulous little cookies. I used my KA mixer to mix the batter and did not have one little problem. They are so tasty with the cinnamon and oatmeal. The only slight changes I made was to use applesauce in place of the shortening as I don't use shortening as a personal preference and I used dried cranberries in place of the raisins. These are perfect cookies and they are sitting in my freezer waiting for Christmas Day to be served (and also so I don't eat them all before the family arrives LOL). So glad I tagged you in Potluck Tag. :)

      These cookies are pretty good. My 11yo DS and I made them this morning. They came together quickly and easily. I found it easier to use my hands to mix the dough at the end than a spatula. I also added a little nutmeg and ground cloves to give them a bit of a spice cake flavor. My biggest issue with them was the cooking times. I put them in for 14 mins and they were still nearly raw, so I gave them another 4 minutes. They were still quite underdone, even thinking ahead that they will still cook a bit afterwards. So, the next batch I upped the temp to 350°F and cooked them for a total of 15 minutes. I needed to leave them on the sheet for a very long time after. Hours later, they are cooled and I like them much better now. The oatmeal is a light delicate taste, not heavy at all. I didn't use nuts b/c the DH won't eat them if I did. I definitely would make them again, but I would make the adjustments to the cooking temps and times. Made and Reviewed for Photo Tag Oct 08. Thanks :)
