White chocolate chip spice cookies

I had the chance to make the white chocolate chip spice mix cookies over the weekend, and they are really good. They take longer to cook than most cookies (15-20 minutes), so I wouldn't recommend them for a last-minute cookie baking project, but they are delicious.  The white chocolate cuts the otherwise heavy taste of the spice cake mix, and the spice cake mix gives the white chocolate more flavor than it would usually have.  I omitted the nuts because I don't like nuts, and in the future will probably make a few other changes as well.
1 box spice cake mix
1 stick melted butter (next time, I will swap this out with 1/4 cup applesauce and 1/4 cup butter)
2 eggs
1 cup white chocolate chips (actually measure - in this recipe, there is such a thing as too much chocolate chips - I put in too many and the dough was pretty hard to work with.

1.  Preheat oven to 350.
2.  Mix together mix, butter, and eggs until consistent.  Add chocolate chips.
3.  Scoop onto ungreased baking sheets - these cookies don't spread, so you can clump them pretty close together.
4.  Bake for 15-20 minutes, until fairly done.  Remove with a spatula and allow to cool on cooling racks.  (This is actually important - if you try to pull the cookies up with your fingers, they fall apart.)
