Using a purchased cake mix to make cookies is a fun way to save time in the kitchen. This recipe will work with any flavor of cake mix. You can also use Homemade Cake Mix to reduce the chemicals in your food.

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 25 minutes

Yield: 30 cookies


  • 18 oz. pkg. cake mix (any flavor)
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1 egg


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, combine all ingredients at low speed until dry ingredients are moistened and dough is thoroughly mixed. Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls 2" apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake at 350 for 9-12 minutes. Cool two minutes on cookie sheets, then remove to wire racks to cool.

If you're using a chocolate cake mix, add 2 Tbsp. water along with egg. You can stir in chocolate chips, coated candy pieces, chopped nuts, or oatmeal. Frost the cookies, using canned frosting, or make sandwich cookies by spreading frosting between two cookies. These Cake Mix Cookies should be stored tightly covered at room temperature so they stay soft.

Cake Mix cookies, Guest St Louis Mom

I used a chocolate fudge cake mix, melted the butter and added 1/2 cup sour cream after mixing the egg into the batter, Also sprinkled a little bit of cinnamon into batter. Baked then sprinkled with powdered sugar...VERY yummy!
