Cake Mix Cookies
Tis the season for cookies! I decided that I need to really amp up my cookie recipe arsenal. As much as I love the fabulous New York Times Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe that takes a good 48 hours to make, I often need something that is faster. (Ok, ok, so I don’t need them faster, but sometimes a girl gets cravings!)
How to Make ANY FLAVOR Cake Mix Cookies
You can take any flavor box cake mix and add:
1/3 cup melted butter
The batter will be thick, and that is ok. (The consistency will vary a little bit from one box mix to another.) I use a mini ice cream scoop and drop the dough about 2-inches apart from other cookies. Bake according to the recipe below and voila! You have an easy cookie that people will enjoy!
These Chocolate Chip Cake Mix Cookies come together in just minutes!
- 1 box Yellow Cake Mix (15.25 ounces)
- 1/3 cup melted butter
- 2 eggs, room temperature
- 1 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips
Heat oven to 350°F (325°F for dark or nonstick pans or for a convection oven).
In large bowl beat cake mix, butter, and eggs with electric mixer on medium speed until smooth. (You can also do this by hand)
- Stir in chocolate chips by hand.
Drop dough about 2 inches apart on cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.
Bake cookies 8 to 12 minutes or until edges are set (centers will be soft and cookies will be very light in color). Cool 1 minute; remove from cookie sheets to cooling rack.
- Store covered.
So are you ready for an HONEST review?
While I did like these cookies, I could definitely taste that something was distinct. There is a noticeable change in texture and flavor. Quite frankly, there is no substitute for a delicious, from-scratch, homemade chocolate chip cookie and, if you are taking the time to bake one, I say GO FOR IT and grab a great recipe!
If you are in a pinch then these Cake Mix cookies will work just fine! 🙂
