If you don't mind semi-homemade recipes, this cookie recipe is my favorite go-to when I have a sweet tooth or need to entertain and don't have the time to make a recipe from scratch.
1 box Devil's Food cake mix
1/3 c. oil
1 tsp. vanilla
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with tinfoil. In a medium size bowl, mix the cake mix, oil, vanilla and eggs together with a spatula. Spread the sugar out onto a plate or shallow dish. Roll the dough into 1 inch balls and into the sugar. Place 1 inch apart on the prepared sheet and bake for 9 minutes. Let cool for 2 minutes on the sheet and then remove to a cooling rack.
