    I love this recipe. So easy to do

    Turned out great! I’m wondering if I should move the rack higher up to get the tops browner 🤷🏻‍♀️ Flatten them before putting in the oven. I used french vanilla cake mix with butterscotch and white chocolate chips.

    These cookies are awful! I am an experienced baker, and I was excited to try the recipe after reading the great reviews. These were literally the worst cookies I’ve ever tried. The cream cheese gives them an unappealing texture, almost like raw cake dough (even though they were fully baked) I’m sorry I wasted the ingredients on this recipe.

    Used a Chocolate Marble cake mix ; added chopped walnuts and a mixture of chocolate and butterscotch chips. When arranging the cookie dough on the baking pan, I made sure I pressed each one flat. This made the cookies nice and thin, giving them a little crunch. The cookies came out nice and buttery with no overpowering sweetness as there was no added sugar to the mix. The butterscotch and chocolate chips and chopped walnuts, I thought complemented the buttery cookies well. Very easy to make, I will make it again, next time with lemon cake mix, instead.

    Yummy! The cream cheese makes these cookies so decadent and not too sweet or rich...just flavorful, cakey cookies. Super fast and easy

    I made this recipe using a chocolate cake mix and adding Reese’s peanut butter chips my husband said they’re great! I cooked them at 350 for 15 minutes make sure to mash the cookie dough balls down as they don’t spread on their own

    To much chocolate. Baked in 8/8 pan. Used NuWave at 3oo% for 30min.

    This cookie was so delicious! I used caramel bits in mine and it was great. I would recommend watching your timing on baking the cookies so they don't burn. However these cookies still tasted good even if they are a little burnt.

    Turned out really cakey and fluffy. Not what you'd expect from a cookie. Still good though - I used chocolate fudge mix with chocolate chips. You'll definitely want a glass of milk or a cuppa with these!

    We used strawberry cake mix and chocolate chips. With the cream cheese in this recipe they were fantastic. The kids love how soft and fluffy these cookies are and I love how quick and easy the recipe is. These are perfect to send to a church dinner when you've forgotten to whip your dessert up ahead if time.

    These cookies are very good and would definitely would make again. I was afraid they wouldn't be cooked all the way but I checked bottoms of the cookies and took out when bottoms where brown. So good!!!

    Good for a base recipe. Used white cake mix and chocolate chip cookies.

    These were SO good! I used white cake mix and actually mixed the cake mix into it with a mixer at the end and added small chocolate chips and when I baked them they were really big and fluffy! It didn't make many cookies though. Maybe enough for a small family like my own but not for a party. Still they were a hit!!! 👍🏻

    Super easy to make, and everyone loved them. The final look was a little fluffier looking than a regular cookie, but the taste and texture was really good. I would make these again.

    These are really good! Easy! and fast! I will make these again. I am so used to the brown sugar taste with regular chocolate chip cookies that I am wondering how to get that taste in there. I think this is a great recipe when you want Chocolate chip cookies now.
