  • 2
    Refrigerate dough 15 to 30 minutes or as needed for easier handling. Shape dough into 1-inch balls; roll in sugar. On ungreased cookie sheets, place balls about 2 inches apart.
  • 3
    Bake 9 to 11 minutes or until set. Cool 1 minute; remove from cookie sheets to cooling racks. Cool completely, about 30 minutes. Store tightly covered.

Expert Tips

  • A cake mix is just the right blend of flour, leavening, and flavorings—a tried and true shortcut to baking up everyday treats. Stirring a chocolate mix with eggs and oil yields a soft dough. Chilling it before rolling it into balls—protecting the dough from the heat of your hands—ensures that the cookies will be meltingly tender when they leave the oven.
  • Use a canola, sunflower, or even a mild olive oil—all heart-healthy sources of fat.
  • For Chocolate Chip-Chocolate Cookies, stir 2/3 cup mini chocolate baking chips into the dough. Roll the dough in chocolate decorating decors for a triple dose of chocolate.
