Incredibly Easy Cake Mix Cookies...With Endless Possibilities

I love to cook, but I *can not* bake.  I'm more of a "pinch of this...pinch of that" cook which usually doesn't work well with cookies, cakes and such.

That's why I was thrilled when I found a recipe for cake mix cookies.  If you don't like to bake (but enjoy a great cookie...or 12) you'll want to give this recipe a try!

All you need is:

  • a cake mix (any flavor)
  • an egg (my photo shows two...but you only need one)
  • 1/2 cup butter

Combine the ingredients at low speed or by hand until moistened.  Drop by rounded tablespoons 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets.

Bake at 350 from 9-12 minutes.

I had a milk chocolate cake mix and added chocolate chips.  They turned out amazing!  In fact, I'd meant to take a photo of the finished cookies for you but they  were gone before I had the opportunity.

What I love most about cake mix cookies (aside from not having to measure...much) is that the possibilities are endless!  Here are a few new cookie creations I've been dreaming about.

  • red velvet with white chocolate chips
  • german chocolate with pecans
  • yellow cake with peanut butter chips
  • strawberry or lemon cookies with vanilla frosting
  • ...and so on...and so on...and so on!
