Cake Mix Cookies


Today is another snow day. I'm happy, though. Really. I'm happy because Taylor's Outdoor School has been postponed until later in the school year. So, in a sense, I'm sacrificing my sanity (today) for Taylor. And I'm good with that. It also helps that the kids have been pretty good this week, too.

This morning I whipped up some very simple, but yummy cookies.

Cake Mix Cookies:

1 box flavored cake mix*
1 egg
1/3 cup oil
2 - 3 TBSP water

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Mix all ingredients together well. Drop on cookie sheet.** Bake for 12-13 minutes. Devour.

*This batch was made from Triple Chocolate Fudge cake mix, but French Vanilla is extra yummy, too. (Coming back to report that I like French Vanilla better.)

**I always use a Silpat lining. Don't forget to use your coupon there. They never expire.

I've had some made with lemon cake mix and they were pretty good, too...

We made those, and they were delish! (Now I need cookies.)

Hmmm... I've never made them like that. My recipeis a cake mix, an egg and a small carton of cool whip and then you drop them in powered sugar before baking. My dad's favorite is lemon, but I like the chocolate best. :)

MMMmmm!
I always throw in a few white chocolate chips into my chocolate cake mix cookies. You know, it's because I could use the extra calories! :)

Oh, what a great price! I've never seen them for so low, & I know just where to find a coupon. All my baking sheets are just trashed. The cord skirt looks great. I've been thinking of how to wear all those great colors & patterns they make for girls, but as a grown-up. That's a sweet example.

Ooh! A friend of mine made chocolate chip cake mix cookies for a holiday cookie party and they were SO good. My favorites from the party, in fact. Why haven't I made these yet?

Hi Lera,

I tried this recipe on the weekend. I happened to have french vanilla and used it, however, I broke up a chocolate bar and had chunks of chocolate in them. The kids loved them, not to mention me. I told them if they liked them, homemade cookies would be the norm around here. I never knew of this recipe before... so thanks for sharing. Making cookies has never been so easy.
