Pistachio Cake Mix Cookies

1 white cake mix

1 small box instant pistachio pudding

2 eggs

1/2 c. vegetable oil

3/4 tsp. almond extract, opt.

a few drops green food coloring, opt

1 1/2 c. white chocolate chips


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Combine cake mix and pudding mix.  Add the eggs, oil, almond extract and green food coloring.  Mix the best you can using a hand mixer.  If batter is too stiff, finish mixing with a wooden spoon.  Stir in 1 cup of the white chocolate chips.  Roll dough into 1'' - 1 1/2'' balls and place on a lightly greased baking sheet.  Press 2 or 3 white chocolate chips into the top of each cookie.  Bake for 10-12 minutes.  Tops will be cracked and outside will be very slightly browned.  Yield: about 2 1/2 dozen cookies.  


Jenn's Notes:  The dough is pretty greasy, but it tastes perfect once baked.  I added four drops of green food coloring.  I refrigerated my dough overnight and my cookies were done at 12-13 minutes.
