I was not planning on calling these “White Cake Cookies”. They started out as Cake Mix Cookies with White Chocolate Buttercream. But then I tried one… and I realized. These taste just like white cake!! And who doesn’t love cake?

I used store-bought cake mix to make these cookies. If you want to make them from scratch I recommend a basic Sugar Cookie recipe and pair it with the White Chocolate Buttercream. It won’t be exactly that same, but it will still be amazing!

How to Make White Cake Cookies

Begin by baking the cookies. Set aside to cool.

Prepare buttercream. Be sure to take care when heating the white chocolate as it is temperamental.

PRO TIP: When I am heating white chocolate in the microwave I set my power to 30% and heat it for 1 minute, then in 10-second increments stirring well between each heating. This will ensure your white chocolate does not seize and get lumpy!

Once cookies are cooled you can spread the buttercream. I used a small offset spatula, but you can use a spoon or butter knife.

These cookies are truly delicious plain or covered in that glorious white chocolate buttercream! And with only 3 ingredients, they are certainly easy to make!

    I’ve made this cookie 3 years in a row. Every year I throw out the recipe because they are too irresistible and I feel fat after Christmas. Then I look it up again every December. They are a new cookie tradition for me.
