Cake Cookie Recipe

My family has been complaining that I never bake cookies anymore. Well I do but usually it's cookies for my two dogs. Today I had remembered someone telling me that you could make cookies from a cake mix and I thought perfect, I'll whip up chocolate chip cookies and make everyone happy.

The recipe I was following was way too hard to mix so I added a few extra ingredients to the and the cookies came out delicious. Yes I've been on a low carb diet and these cookies are a definite no no, but I had to taste them to make sure they were edible. I've only ate one so I figure I'm safe.
