How to make cake mix cookies for Easter:
First, preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Use a cookie scoop to scoop out the cookie dough and place on baking sheets leaving about 2 inches between each cookie.
Place the M&Ms on top of the dough and slightly press down into the dough.
Bake for 8 to 10 minutes until cookies brown SLIGHTLY on the edges.
Allow to cool completely and then serve.

Tips for the best cake mix cookies:
If you are still scooping cookies with two spoons, you really need to get yourself some stainless steel scoops!
I have had mine for several years and I use them for all types of baking. I bought the 3 pack and used the smallest of the 3 scoops for these cake mix cookies (and almost all my cookies) and they were just the right size for adults and kids.
The other sizes are perfect for other recipes or meatballs and such. Trust me, they will get lots of use and are well worth the small investment.
We have even used an ice cream scoop but I do prefer the smaller cookie scoops.
It is also a good idea to use a cooling rack. Place the cookies on racks to cool completely.
We also line baking sheets with parchment paper. This makes cleaning large baking sheets easier as well.
You will save lots of time and this is one of our favorite easy recipes. It is one of the easiest dessert recipes ever.
