Cookie Update!

June 25, 2008 at 11:38 am (Uncategorized)

Apparently I am the only person on earth that did not know cookies could be made from a cake mix!

Here are a few of the variations of this recipe I received after I posted about our cake mix cookies yesterday.

From my Mom:
I have used this recipe for years.  Add choc. chips to a yellow cake mix for Choc. Chip Cookies.  Yummy!   

From my sil:
It has been several years since I made cake mix cookies, but I use to do the lemon ones and dust with powder sugar. Now I’m getting hungry.

From a reader:
I have used this recipe in many a pinch when we had unexpected drop in company. My recipe is a little different than yours.  But the mix ins open up a whole ‘nother realm of possibilities.  It’s really yummy to use spice cake with raisins and nuts.  We’ve also done white or yellow cake mix with a dash of extract (orange, lemon and almond are especially yummy!).

1 package of cake mix (any flavor)
1 large egg
1/4 cup of oil
1/4 cup of water
1 cup of chopped nuts, raisins, oatmeal, coconut, chocolate chips, M&M’S® etc. (anything you like in cookies)

And from an inventive reader:

hi, jamin’–we are going to make these tomorrow with chocolate fudge cake mix.  i’ll toss in some chocolate chips and substitute applesauce for the oil.  (i hope it works like that!)  these will go great with the ziploc bag ice cream recipe we love.

So there you have it! 

All kinds of cookies all from a cake mix!

Thanks so much to everyone that shared their variation of the recipe with me!

    You can use a similar recipe to make cookie maps for a tasty educational project. Geography Cookie:

    Just lower the oil to 1/4 cup. Enjoy!

    When I saw your post re: cake mix cookies, I was reminded of another recipe I had that uses these for ice cream sandwiches. Since I had company coming, it was the perfect time to whip some up. I used a french vanilla (white) cake mix and stirred in some crumbled fudge stripe cookies to add some interest. After baking & cooling, I put a scoop of ice cream between pairs of cookies, wrapped in plastic and put in freezer. They were delicious!

    I wish I had seen the previouse Cake Cookie post earlier. I posted my cake cookie recipe a couple months ago. It makes chocolate crinkle cookies. You can see the post here I can't wait to try the strawberry cookies…they look great!
