You will never see an easier recipe…there are only 3 ingredients:
1 spice cake mix
¾ c. vegetable shortening
I’m not such a fan of using any pre-made mixes (oh the horror!) when I can make them myself. But it’s kind of nice not to have to get out (and measure out) a bunch of ingredients when you’re in a hurry or don’t feel like making a big mess.
Mix it up, roll into 1” balls, flatten their tops a little on the cookie sheet and bake at 350 for 11-12 minutes.
Oh, and you can toss them in powdered sugar if you want to; just be careful not to cough out your lungs if you accidentally inhale the powder…like I somehow mange to do almost every time.
