Ok, I don't know if I should admit this but these are hands down my family's favorite cookie! My hesitation in admitting it is because they are so easy it really feels like I'm cheating when I make them. You need only 4 ingredients.
1 Lemon Cake mix
2/3 Cup Veggie Oil
White chocolate chips
And here's what you do:
Mix first 3 ingredient together in bowl. I don't even use a mixer, I just stir it with a spoon until it is well combined. It will be slightly stiff and thick and will look something like this:
Then take small spoonfuls and drop on to a cookie sheet. I drop it then go back and shape them into balls but you could just drop them and leave them that way. Then I take my white chocolate chips and add a little pile to each cookie.
So, I know you are probably wondering why I don't add the chips to the dough in the bowl. You can. I've done it that way before however the dough is stiff and the chips don't stick well so I prefer to add them individually. Plus, I like to think of them as little birds nest, I mean seriously, isn't that what they look like?
Next you simply bake them in a 350 degree preheated oven for about 8 minutes. The trick here is to NOT over bake. For some reason they are not as good when they are crispy. Maybe it's just a preference thing but my family likes them soft. So, as a good rule of thumb I will take them out of the oven just when the chips start to slightly brown. (Recipe will yield about 2 dozen cookies. Of course that depends on the size you make your dough drops)
