Simple Cake Mix Cookies


Easy Cake Mix Cookies in Minutes

I remember is a little girl going to recipes with my mother in finding the recipe cliped from the newspaper for Cake Mix Cookies. The paper was old and yellow but it had an interesting recipe on it for cookies made from a cake mix. I asked my mom where it came from and she didn’t know but that recipe always kind of stuck with me because it was so easy. Later on I needed a recipe for a bake sale and thought of the Cake Mix Cookies as a great idea. So I grab the recipe and a couple boxes of cake mixes from the pantry shelf and said to work. Within minutes I had a beautiful dough that was easy to work with and fast to bake.

Cake Mixes that Work Best with Cake Mix Cookies

Any commercially prepared cake mix that you find the grocery store works fantastic with Cake Mix Cookies. As long as you like the flavor of the cake you will love the cookies. Because they don’t get as fluffy as a cake, the flavor is enhanced in the smaller shape . I love to pair my favorite cake mixes with complimentary frosting, such as German chocolate cake with coconut pecan icing. It makes a fantastic pair that is like a tiny cake in your hand.

Freezing Cake Mix Cookies

I love buying cake mixes when they’re on sale and making up batches and batches of cake mix cookies. Instead of frosting them, I’ll let them cool, place them in plastic zippy bags and freeze. They’ll stay in a kitchen freezer for about a month or a deep freeze for about 6 months. When you want to serve them, take them out and place them on a plate. When thawed, frost with your favorite frosting and they’re ready to go. Fresh Cake Mix Cookies right from your freezer.
