For anyone with teenage boys, you are familiar with the hollow leg syndrome - especially when those teenage boys have friends over! This recipe is perfect for a situation where you need something whipped up quickly because you know it will be devoured just as quickly. I've made so many versions of these cookies and, with some many cake mix/oil/mix-in combos, they are a new cookie every time!
- 1 box spice dry cake mix
- 1/2 cup Blood Orange Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- 2 eggs
- 3/4 cup toffee pieces
Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease a cookie sheet or place parchment paper/silicone mat on it.
In a medium bowl, combine cake mix, olive oil and eggs. With a spatula, stir until dough comes together completely and well-mixed. Mix in the toffee pieces and stir with spatula until incorporated.
Using a small cookie scoop or two spoons, place a rounded tablespoon of dough on the prepared cookie sheet, spacing about 2 inches apart. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until cookies are firm to the touch. Move to wire rack to cool.
Makes ~2 dozen cookies
