Loaded Spice Cookies

Since we are all mourning the end of the whoopie pie series (oh is it just me?), I thought I’d post a different kind of cookie recipe to soften the blow.

This is one of my favorites because it’s delicious and easy. It involves one of my favorite ingredients: a cake mix!

I’ve made these several times when I needed cookies in a hurry (because who doesn’t need cookies in a hurry?).

Loaded Spice Cookies



  • 1 spice cake mix
  • 1/3 C vegetable oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 C butterscotch chips
  • 1/2 C white chocolate chips
  • 1/2 C chopped pecans


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Combine cake mix, eggs and oil until smooth (I often use my hands toward the end).
  • Stir in chips and nuts
  • Bake  8-10 minutes. Makes 2 dozen cookies

I love these cookies! If I’m being perfectly honest, I’ll admit I often add more than 1/2 cup of each of the chips, plus the extra I sample while baking. Enjoy!

    We made these minus the pecans, and they are delicious! In fact, husband asked when I’d make them again. I’m thinking about today…
