Before You Bake

When rolling your cookies, be sure to keep the cookie dough in a ball form before you bake them. As they heat, they will naturally flatten. Flattening them prior to baking them may cause them to over-flatten and become too brittle. if you would like to render more of a homemade taste, adding a pinch of ingredients, such as vanilla, salt, butter or even milk can lend more of a rich texture that will taste as though you made your cake mix cookies from scratch.
