Easy Cake Mix Cookies (4 recipes)
by Rachel Keller

If you love cookies, but are short on time, try making these delicious cookies which start with a cake mix. You can make a wide variety of cookies by using different cake mixes.

This recipe is so incredibly easy!

Easy Cake Mix Cookie #1

1 pkg. any flavor Pillsbury Plus Cake Mix

1/2 c. margarine or butter, softened

1 egg

Combine all ingredients at low speed until thoroughly moistened. Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake at 350 for 9-12 minutes. Cool two minutes; remove from pans.

Tips: If using chocolate cake mix, add 2 Tbsp. water to ingredients

If desired, stir in 1 c. chocolate chips or 1/2 c. chopped nuts.

If desired, frost cookies with your favorite flavor of frosting.

For sandwich cookies, spread frosting between 2 cookies.


Cake Mix Cookie #2

About five years ago, I discovered a recipe for German Chocolate Cake Mix Cookies. I have since adapted the recipe and now make many different cookies using this basic recipe. I love the versatility and ease of this recipe!

Yields about 4 dozen cookies

1 box cake mix (any variety)

1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips (can substitute caramel or peanut butter chips or do a combination)

1/ 2 -1 cup oatmeal (I always put in as much as I can!)

1 /2 cup oil

2 eggs, slightly beaten

1/ 2 cup raisins (optional)

1 tsp. vanilla (optional)

nuts (optional)

Preheat oven to 350. In a large bowl, combine all the ingredients, blending well. If the mixture is too stiff, add a little water. Drop dough by rounded teaspoonfuls 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake at 350 for 8-10 minutes or until set. Cool 1 minute before removing form the cookie sheets.

For altitudes above 3500 feet, add 1/ 4 cup flour to dry cake mix.

Variation: Use white cake mix and add a pudding mix. I added strawberry, for tasty pink cookies. If you use pudding, you will need to add some water (about 1/4 cup). Also, the pudding tends to make the cookies sweeter.


Cake Mix Cookie #3

Yields about 2 dozen.

1 (9 oz.) pkg. yellow cake mix (or your favorite flavor)

2/3 cup oatmeal

1/2 cup butter or margarine, melted

1 egg

*1/2 cup chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, peanut butter chips, M&Ms (your preference)

* For a healthier cookie, substitute raisins in place of the chips.

Preheat oven to 375. In a mixing bowl, beat the cake mix, oatmeal, butter and egg. Stir in the chips. Drop by tablespoonfuls 2 inches apart onto ungreased baking sheets. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until lightly browned. Immediately remove to wire racks to cool.


Devilís Food Cookies

Yields about 5 dozen cookies.

1 (18.5-ounce) package devilís food cake mix without pudding

1/2 cup vegetable oil

2 eggs, beaten

1/2 cup chopped pecans

6 (1.45-ounce) milk chocolate bars, divided into squares (optional)

1/2 cup coconut (optional)

Preheat oven to 350. Combine cake mix, oil, and eggs in a large mixing bowl and mix well. Stir in the pecans. Drop batter by teaspoons 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake for 10 minutes. Remove from cookie sheets and cool completely on wire racks.

Optional: While the cookies are still on the pan, place 1 square of milk chocolate on each; spread gently to frost. Sprinkle with coconut.
