Step 4: Roll into balls and cover with sugar. If the dough seems too sticky you can chill it for 10-15 minutes before you roll into balls.

Step 5: Place on baking sheet about 2" apart. HINT: Use parchment paper to line the baking sheet. Cookies will not burn as easily and it makes for super quick clean-up!

Step 7: Bake for 8-10 minutes until just set. 

TIP: Take the cookies out near the 10 minute mark even if they look like they could use a few more minutes. These are cake mix cookies so they will firm up after cooling on the baking sheet for 3-4 minutes after you take them out of the oven.

Step 8: Cool completely on a wire rack. Sit back with a cup of Who-Tea and enjoy a couple of these with the kids!
