Cake Mix Cookies

These are by far the easiest cookies I have ever made. I found them via pinterest via Sweet Sugar Belle Now normally I don't make cookies or cake, with cake mix..I like everything home made! When I saw these I wanted to try them because they were easy, and so adorable..and perfect for Valentine's Day. They were pretty tasty too! If you like simple, tasty, cookies..I urge you to make these! They are very soft, and stay soft and fresh longer than your normal cookie recipe.

Easy Cake Mix Cookies
1 boxed cake mix (I used Devil's Food)
1/2 cup {1 stick} unsalted butter at room temp
2 eggs
1 1/2 to 2 tbsp. flour
1-2 tsp. vanilla or other flavoring (optional)

Place all ingredients in a mixing bowl and mix until incorporated...it's that easy! Scoop dough onto parchment lined baking pans and bake 10-12 minutes. I used a silpat..just because! Well, it was a knock off silpat I got for my bridal shower..I hope to have a real silpat one day! Let cool on the sheet, and enjoy!

 The before..up above, I decided to roll my cookies in tiny heart sprinkles!
 The after! See how pretty they are?
 I love the cute little sprinkles..they are perfect!
