Fastest EVER Oatmeal Raisin Cookies
(recipe discovered on TK and slightly altered from TK member carolinacollegcook)


2 eggs

1/2 cups veggie or canola oil (I used canola)

1 box (18oz) Yellow Cake Mix (moist variations work best)

1 1/2 Tbsp cream - 1/2 and 1/2, light or heavy will all work well (I used heavy)

1 tsp ground cinnamon

3/4 cup raisins

3/4 cup oatmeal


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

2. Beat eggs in a large bowl.  Add in oil then cake mix and cinnamon and stir/beat until thoroughly incorporated.

3. Add in cream and then raisins and oats.  Make sure everything is incorporated fully.

4. Place scoops of cookie dough on lightly greased or parchment lined cookie sheets.  Bake for 8-10 minutes or until edges are lightly browned.   Cool cookies for a couple minutes on cookie sheets and then remove to cooling racks.

Enjoy with a nice cold glass of milk!

Happy FASTEST Ever Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Baking!

  2. You've gotta love recipes that can be made in a flash, especially when those sweet tooth cravings hit you. Great idea and delicious looking cookies.

  3. These look delish!! Love how simple and quick they are. This is a must make for my oatmeal cookie lovers at my house.

  4. YUM! I would love to have a dozen or two!

  5. These are my kind of cookies! Easy and fast. I stay away from rolled cookies because I just don't have the patience, so I pretty much stick to drop cookies. These are perfect! Avril, you must be so excited, only a couple of weeks to go. Take it easy and the best of luck to you. Can't wait to read about the new little one. :o)

  6. I've never seen oatmeal cookies that start off with a cake mix. They look like they have a nice texture though.
