Ever wonder how grocery stores get their cookies so soft and - well - perfect??  I think I might've figured it out:  Use cake batter! 

From cooks.com:

CAKE MIX COOKIES

1 package of cake mix (any flavor)

1 large egg

1/4 cup of oil

1/4 cup of water

1 cup of chopped nuts, raisins, oatmeal, coconut, chocolate chips, M&M'S® etc. (anything you like in cookies)

Preheat oven to 350°F.

Combine cake mix, egg, oil, and water. Beat until well blended. Stir in remaining ingredient (s).

Drop by teaspoon about 1 inch apart onto greased cooke sheet.

Bake for 15 minutes or until done.

Makes about 4 dozen. Yummy!

These are so good it's ridiculous!  Even better:  Don't forget frosting!!
