    Generally not a procrastinator but last night I got the “You are baking something for tomorrow aren’t you?” comment… Might be these!

    I’m glad you posted the cake mix cookie recipe! I use to make a cake mix cookie, but lost the recipe. I like to make from scratch too, but sometimes .. a whip-it-together is awesome.

    That’s a type of candy on top?! Clearly I need to check those out. And as far as procrastinating goes… it’s 7:21pm over here and so far my husband and I haven’t done a thing yet. What a pathetic Valentine’s Day. :(

    Gonna go check out the recipe!

    Did anyone actually mix these up? Right now I’m looking at a mixture that looks more like cake batter than cookie dough. The batter just spreads out when I put it on the cookie sheet. Sigh, I’ll add mor flour.

      I have made this recipe more times than I can count. The batter should definitely not be spreading. Can you tell me which brand of cake mix you used? Here is the recipe from the Duncan Hines site from which I adapted my from:

      I used Betty Crocker Devil’s Food cake mix. I added 1/2 cup of flour and it worked better. Maybe the fact I’m in Denver…
