Baking cookies (from scratch) are one of my most favorite treats to bake…about 4 times a week, actually!  But, the simplicity and texture of cookies with a cake mix is totally worth it.   They’re fast to make.  And not to mention, super soft to eat!

Roll the cookie dough into a small ball.  Gently smash with your palm on the baking sheet.  Bake them in a preheated oven at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes.  Allow the cookies to finish baking on the baking sheet for another 5-7 minutes after you take them out of oven.

      Averie, isn’t it so funny how cake mix is amazing for bars (talking about yours! <3) and cookies?! I don't know if it's the sprinkles or what...but my boys' eyes light up every time I make these! (=

    I love using cake mix in my cookies! It makes cookies so soft and puffy looking, which I adore.
    Your cookies are perfect for July 4…swap the sprinkles for holiday colors and you’ve got a completely different looking cookie! Love it when you can do that to a good base recipe. 🙂

      Stephanie, to be honest I have not tried that yet… but I can bet they would work out in a 9×13 pan. Now, I think I’m going to go make some in a pan… delish! Thank you for stopping by!
