Oatmeal Cookies - Cooking with Alicia & Annie Contest

We like cake mix cookie recipes for the convenience and ease of making after dinner during a busy week. This recipe for oatmeal cookies is simple enough that you can get the kids involved, too!

Although this recipe will never take the place of our family recipe for oatmeal raisin cookies, they were really good as a quick dessert. My kids took them in their lunch boxes the next day, too.

You can find the original recipe here.

In my version of the recipe below, I used 2 C. of raisins instead of raisins & nuts. A good tip for soft, chewy raisins is to soak the raisins in very hot water for at least 10 minutes. Make sure to drain well before adding the raisins into the batter. I used light brown sugar instead of dark brown because that's what I had on hand and they turned just fine.

Oatmeal Cookies
1 pkg. spice cake mix (2 layer)
2 1/2 c. uncooked rolled oats
2 eggs
3/4 c. cooking oil
1/2 c. milk
1 c. raisins
2 c. chopped nuts
1/4 c. light brown sugar


Combine all ingredients and mix well. Drop from
a teaspoon onto an ungreased cookie sheet.

Bake at 350 degrees for about 12 minutes.

This is other entry into the February edition of the Cooking with Alicia & Annie contest.

Second photo deleted while I try to find out what I did to have it violate Photobucket's policies. I'm at a loss on this one. I uploaded it like any other photo.

Hi Susan :)

The spice cake gives the cookies a really good taste. I would've added nuts as my choice but my dh doesn't really like nuts in cookies.

They are super easy to make. Thanks for stopping by tonight! :)
