Tips & Tricks To Make the Best Cake Mix Cookies :

  • Start with your favorite Cake Mix flavor and make sure it matches the recipe quantity requirements
  • You can use melted butter or canola oil if you don’t have butter on hand. I prefer using butter, but oil will work too.
  • The eggs should be at room temperature
  • I like to roll the cookies in white granulated sugar, it gives it that crackly, sugary top
  • You can use your favorite mix ins, but don’t use fresh fruits like raspberries, as they will add extra water to the recipe
  • Mix ins that I like are: chocolate chips, white chocolate chips, nuts, sprinkles, raisins and dried fruits
  • Make sure you don’t over bake the cookies and let them cool in the pan a few minutes before transferring to a cooling rack, as the cookies are still very soft when they come out of the oven

Instructions

  1. Heat oven to 350°F.
  2. In a large bowl whisk and combine cake mix, butter, and eggs with electric mixer on medium speed or just by using a fork (I prefer the fork for these recipes). Whisk until smooth.
  3. Stir in mix ins (like nuts, chocolate chips ext) by hand based on recipes.
  4. Form dough balls, about 1.5 tablespoon of dough per ball, roll them with your hands and roll in sugar.
