Here's a easy recipe for two kinds of cookies using a cake mix!

Easy Chocolate Cookie Dough

1/4 c. oil
2 T. flour (if needed to make dough easier to roll into balls)

Roll chocolate cookie dough into balls and roll in powdered sugar. Bake at 350 for 9 minutes. When cookies are cool, frost bottom of cookie and top with another cookie making a sandwich.

3 T. butter
1 c. powdered sugar (or more)
1 1/2 T. milk
1/4 tsp. vanilla

Chocolate Peanut Butter Chip Cookies
Mix peanut butter chips (1 c.) into chocolate cookie dough. Form into balls. Bake at 350 for 9 minutes.
