    My Private Note


    Serves: 24



    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 (18 1/4 ounce) box butter pecan cake mix
    • 1 egg
    • vegetable oil
    • water
    • 1/2 cup chopped fresh pecans


    1. 1
      Pour cake mix into a large bowl. Whisk dry mix to remove lumps or sift it into the bowl.
    2. 2
      Add pecans to the dry cake mix and stir well.
    3. 3
      In a liquid measuring cup, add the egg. Add enough oil to the egg to bring the mixture to 1/2 cup. Add enough water to bring the mixture to 2/3 cup. Beat mixture together with a fork.
    4. 4
      Add egg mixture to cake mix in large bowl. Mix well.
    5. 5
      Using a teaspoon or small ice cream scoop, gather balls of dough, rolling them into perfect circles. Place 12 on a cookie sheet and bake 8-12 minutes at 350 degrees F. If they get golden brown, they are too done. Pulling them out around 10 minutes should be perfect.
    6. 6
      Let the cookies cool 5 minutes before transfering them to a plate or container.

      These couldn't be any easier! I was in need of one more variety of cookie to finish up my holiday trays. Between a time crunch & our grandson's visit I was looking for quick. I had the butter pecan cake mix on hand so decided to try these. I am so glad I did! The cookies are delicious, baked to a pretty color, and held well. I made exactly 24 cookies per batch. One note; they don't spread out much so depending on pan size they could be spaced closer together. I will definitely use this recipe again. Thanks for sharing the recipe! =)

      These are so easy! I mixed them together in a flash, and used my small cookie scoop to form balls. They were done, start to finish, in 20 minutes! (Yield was 44 cookies) I will definitely be making these again; thanks, amensista, for a yummy cookie recipe! Made for Spring PAC '09.
