I don't really like Oreo cookies. So to me this name doesn't do these cookies justice. They are much better than oreos. This version is soft and chewy and easy to make. It's another recipe that I can make anytime because I always have the ingredients on hand.
1 box any flavor cake mix
1/2 cup oil
Drop by rounded teaspoon onto a greased cookie sheet. (cookie scoops and parchment paper save time and cleanup)
Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 8-10 minutes.
Cool 3 minutes on cookie sheet then transfer to cooling rack to cool completely.
The cookies are puffed and full when they first come out of the oven. While cooling they will flaten a bit.
These cookies can be eaten right away or made into oreo's by taking 2 equal sized cookies and adding frosting to the middle. I had some cream cheese frosting left over in my fridge so that's what I used.

Here's a sampling from the book, PW's Potato Skins. Yum!
I think you'll like this cookbook as much as I am enjoying it.

This is the easiest recipe I have! Without a doubt the easiest cookies ever. Plus I always (almost always) have all the ingredients on hand. Here goes...
Pumpkin chocolate chip cookies
2 spice flavored cake mixes (any brand will do-in a pinch i've even used one spice and one carrot cake)
1 29 oz. can pumpkin (not pumpkin pie-just plain pumpkin)
1 package chocolate chips (I like milk chocolate but any will do)
Dump dry cake mixes into a bowl. Add canned pumpkin and stir together until well combined. Add chocolate chips. Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto greased cookie sheet. I always use parchment paper and my cookie scoop. Bake at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes, depending on the size.
