Cake Mix Cookies

Another quick-n-easy, super yummy recipe! :)

Just 3 basic ingredients plus a bonus one for fun. All ingredients you probably have in your cupboards right now.

They're light, fluffy with a tiny bit of chewiness, and you can customize them anyway you wish! Your kids could whip these up for you.


Cake Mix Cookies

1 box cake mix (18.25 oz)
2 eggs
1/2 cup vegetable oil
just shy of 1/4 cup mix-in, if desired

NOTE: Never add more than 1/4 cup mix-ins total. For example, if you're adding chocolate chips AND nuts, combine them to equal just shy of 1/4 cup. NOT 1/4 cup each.

Preheat oven to 350*F.

In a medium-sized bowl, stir together cake mix, eggs & oil.

If desired, add mix-in(s) too.

Stir just until completely mixed - don't over mix.

Roll dough into balls, about 1" or just smaller, and place on ungreased cookie sheets.

Bake at 350*F for approx 10-12 minutes. (My oven takes 11 minutes)

Cool for 1-2 minutes on the cookie sheet, then remove cookies to a cooling rack.

Once cooled, store in an airtight container 3-5 days.


Just ask my sweet puppy -

- who, with this perfect sit & beg (LOL!), eventually got a plain vanilla cookie. Happy dog!


We like to use mini-chips or chopped nuts for mix-ins. Any flavor you like will be fine. We've had some fun combining chips & cake mix flavors: chocolate cake mix w/mint chips or crushed candy canes, butter pecan cake mix with butterscotch chips & crushed pecans, lemon cake mix with vanilla chips, french vanilla cake mix with walnuts & craisins...

Anything that sounds good to you will be delicious! Just make sure your TOTAL mix-in(s) are just shy of 1/4 cup!

Anymore than that will overwhelm the dough & the cookies will be runny & flat.

Have fun with it!
