How to make cake mix butter pecan cookies
It can sometimes be hard to find butter pecan cake mix in the stores. I like to buy a few boxes at a time so I always have some on hand. Click to buy my favorite butter pecan cake mix.
Add butter pecan cake mix to a large mixing bowl. Crack two eggs and add them to the bowl.
Add in melted butter and pecans and mix well.
Refrigerate the dough for one hour.
Remove from the refrigerator and roll the dough into tablespoon sized balls. Place the balls on a non-stick baking sheet. I love this set of baking sheets because of the different sizes. You can also lay out a piece of parchment paper and place the dough balls on top of the parchment.
Bake the butter pecan cake mix cookies at 350 degrees for 10 minutes or until cookies are set and lightly browned.
Let cool and enjoy!
