Items Needed for Make Cake Mix Cookies
To make these cake cookies, you will need a few things on hand:
- box of cake mix
- cookie sheet
- vegetable oil
- hand mixer
- large bowl
- parchment paper or non-stick cooking spray
How to Make Cake Mix Cookies
The best part about these cake cookies is that they are so simple you can’t mess them up.
Heat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit and pick out your favorite cake mix. In a large bowl, mix the oil, eggs, and cake mix with a hand mixer. Once the dough has formed, use an ice cream scoop to scoop onto a prepared baking sheet.
Bake in the oven for 10 minutes. Allow the cookies to cool slightly before serving.
How do I keep the Cake Mix Cookie dough from being sticky?
Because the cookie dough requires oil, it is very sticky. I generally use a wooden spoon to help remove the thick mixture from the mixer blades.
To keep the dough from sticking to your spoon, you might consider placing the mixture into the refrigerator for 30 minutes before scooping it onto the cookie sheet to bake.
How do I store leftover Cake Mix Cookies?
If you don’t eat all of them in one sitting, congrats! You’ve achieved a higher level of self-discipline that I have. But seriously, you can store any leftover cake mix cookies in an airtight container out of direct sunlight and preferably in a cool setting such as the refrigerator.
These cookies warm up well and can be placed into the microwave for a warm, chewy, cake-like cookie.
Can I freeze Cake Mix Cookies?
Cake mix cookies can be frozen and are best done in these easy steps:
- Freeze cake mix cookies on a cookie sheet
- Once frozen, stack cookies in a freezer-safe airtight container with parchment paper between them
- Store in the freezer for up to 3 months
How many variations of cake mix cookies are there?
The sky is the limit when it comes to making cake cookies. Not only do you have a lot of cake mix flavors to choose from, but you can also add different mix-ins to change things up, or just top them with powdered sugar.
Some of my favorite ways to make cake cookies are:
