Cake Mix cookies

I did 2 different versions with multiple varieties for this recipe.

What you need...
- 1 box of cake mix, your choice
- 2 eggs
- 1/3 cup oil

What you do...
- mix all ingredients well
- cook at 350 degrees F. for 8 to 10 minutes.

Variation #1

I used a white cake mix. I 13 Christmas trees, 1 Ginger Bread Man, 1 Snowflake, & 13 peppermints out of 1 box of mix. The trees, man & snowflake all cooked for 8 minutes. The peppermint cookie cooked for 10 minutes. For the peppermint cookies I just crushed some peppermint cookies in a bag. I cooked the cookies (plain) for 5 minutes. I took them out & sprinkled the crushed peppermints. Gently pat them in & put back into the oven for another 5 minutes. I iced & sprinkled the cut-outs.

Variation #2

I used a chocolate cake mix. I'm still cooking these, but I think in the end I might have 18 Ginger Bread Men, and I will probably do the rest of the dough with the crushed peppermint. Again, cook the men for 8 minutes. I used sugar sprinkles on the men. Like the peppermint, I put the sprinkles on half way through cooking (4 minutes, sprinkle, pat, 4 minutes).

how did you make the shapes? did you leave the cutters (that shape metal thingies) in the oven with the mix? [sorry for my bad english]

No, you cut the dough out into what ever shapes & then lay the dough onto the cookie sheet.
