    there are so many to choose from.

    the easiest is oatmeal spice cookies

    1 box spice cake mix

    1 egg

    1/2 cup oil or melted butter/margarine

    2Tbsp water

    1 cup instant/minute oats

    mix all ingredients into a thick batter with a spoon (may add a bit more water at a time just to get them to be moldable into a ball shape)

    preheat oven to 350

    roll into golfball sized balls, place on cookie sheet and cook 9-11 minutes or until tops are cracked.

    I love them, and as bad as it sounds, I sometimes make them after the kids have gone to bed and let them eat them for breakfast the next morning.

    Lol, it's simple and cheap. We did put whipped cream in our frosting last year, and I have to tell you....it just made the cookies more addicting. They didn't get hard, and were still fluffy when we got to my dads house.
