Freshly baked oatmeal cookies are arguably one of THE BEST after-school snacks of all time. And even though the semester’s almost over, you can still whip up a batch of these crispy, chewy, lightly spiced cookies for the whole crew. Who needs extra credit when your oatmeal cookie game is A+?
Heat oven to 350 degrees F.
Use a stand mixer, hand mixer, or just a spatula and your own strength, combine butter, eggs, oatmeal, ginger, and cake mix in a bowl until well combined, then stir in chopped ginger. Dough will be fairly thick.
Use a small scoop or hands to create small balls of dough and place on cookie sheet about 2-2.5″ apart.
Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until edges of cookies are golden brown and crisp.
