WHAT DO YOU NEED TO MAKE CARROT CAKE COOKIES WITH CAKE MIX?

HOW DO YOU MAKE COOKIES WITH CAKE MIX?
Add in 1/3 cup of oil.
Add 2 eggs and 1 teaspoon of vanilla to the bowl.
Mix until all the ingredients have been thoroughly combined.
Use a tablespoon to scoop out the cookie dough and place the cookie dough on the cookie sheet a few inches apart.
Bake for 8-9 minutes. You’ll want to remove these before they completely firm up. This way they will stay soft later.
After you remove the cookies from the oven, let them cool for a few minutes and then move them to a baking rack to cool.

I have also made these cookies with some chopped walnuts and they have added a nice crunch.
