Oatmeal Raisin Spice Cake Mix Cookies

These simple oatmeal raisin spice cake mix cookies are easy to make and loaded with flavor.  The recipe begins with a boxy of spice cake mix, and I’m sure that these will become one of your regular cookie choices when it’s time to bake.  They are fast becoming a favorite around our house.

Oatmeal Raisn cookies makde from spice cake mixThe cookie dough for this recipe is thicker than the usual cake mix cookie dough because of the addition of the oats to the mixture.  As a result, they tend to stay fuller which gives you a finished cookie that is smaller in circumference and thicker.  If you want a more uniform, flat cookie, simply press gently down on the cookies prior to baking like when you make the flourless peanut butter cookies.

These cookies are a great addition to a cookie platter or as an accompaniment to milk or tea.
