Springtime Lemon and White Chocolate Chip Cookies

"These cookies are so easy to make because they start with a boxed cake mix.  I used lemon cake mix and added Springtime sprinkles to make them into the perfect Easter treats."

1-(18.25 ounce) lemon cake mix, dry
2 eggs
1/2 cup cooking oil
1/4 cup flour*
1 cup white chocolate chips
2-3 Tablespoons decorating sprinkles (I used a Springtime mix that included little chicks, bunnies and flowers.)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  In a large mixing bowl, combine cake mix, eggs, oil and flour*.  Mix well until thoroughly combined.  (Dough will be thick.). Stir in white chocolate chips and sprinkles.  Using a small scoop or Tablespoon, form cookies into a ball and place onto a non-stick or silicone lined cookie sheet.  Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes.  Cool on cookie sheet for a few minutes and then continue cooling on cooling racks.

*If you don't live at high altitude, you may not need to add the flour to this recipe. My suggestion is to mix the cake mix, eggs and oil together and if the mixture is too thin, you can then add the flour. Where I live in Wyoming, adding the flour made the perfect cookie dough.  However, when my sister made these cookies where she lives in the Pacific Northwest, the flour made the dough too thick. 
TIP:  You can use any flavor cake mix and substitute any mix-ins to make cookies that your family will love.  For example, you can use a carrot cake mix and stir in a cup of chopped walnuts or mix in 1 cup of chopped Andes mints into a chocolate cake mix.  The combinations are endless!
