For quick and easy cookies, use a cake mix as the main ingredient. Here is the recipe for cookies using a white cake mix (I prefer Pillsbury, but any brand will do).
Cake Mix Cookies
1 box white or french vanilla cake mix
1/2 cup cooking oil
a dash of vanilla
1 or 2 tablespoons water
1 cup quick oats
1 cup coconut
1 cup chocolate chips
1 cup chopped pecans (optional)
Mix together, drop by teaspoonful on baking sheet, bake 10-12 minutes at 375 degrees. Makes approximately 4 doz, 3 doz if no oats or coconut are added.
I've made these with chocolate cake mix and added m&m's in place of the chocolate chips; or use yellow cake mix with craisins; lemon cake mix without the chocolate chips.
