Cake Mix Cookies

I know most of my readers eat and love gluten, so I thought I would reassure you all that I am still baking some regular, every day, gluten filled treats.

Most of the baked items I have posted recently have been gluten free, but I do plan on posting regular recipes as I make them.  I have realized that I can handle some levels of cross contamination, so I am still baking and sending treats to my husband’s office. Now, it is probably not as often as it used to be, or as often as his staff would like, but I am sending them. As I make and send them, I will post the recipes.

Last week’s treat was easy, it was an adaption of my cake mix cookies. This recipe is a very easy and basic recipe. It made a perfect cookie for me to send to the office this week, because I did not have a lot of time to spend in the kitchen baking.

I usually use a chocolate cake mix, but this time I used a yellow cake mix and chocolate chips. Although I did not eat any of these, everyone else said they were very good.

I know there are many versions of this recipe. Do you have a version that you make?

  1. we love making lemon cake mix cookies– so refreshing!

    these sound right up my alley too 🙂 thanks!

    do you think they might work with the Betty Crocker GF cake mix?

    Cake mix cookies are so easy to mix up! I love to do an orange cake mix with orange flavoring, or a chocolate cake mix with mint flavoring! A mom in my class turned me on to these…they are so versatile!!

  4. I use the same recipe but I like to use melted butter instead of oil…tastes better to me.

  5. Cake mix cookies are a lifesaver when you need to make something in a hurry–yours look great! I’ve tried a few and my favorite are the lemon. I take a lemon cake mix and mix it with 2 eggs, 1/3 cup vegetable oil, 1 tablespoon lemon juice, & the grated zest from 1 lemon, then chill it for an hour. After rolling the dough into balls, I roll them in powdered sugar and bake them at 375 for 7-9 minutes. The powdered sugar kind of gives them that crinkle effect so I call them lemon crinkles. 🙂 Paula Deen’s Chocolate Gooey Butter Cookies ain’t too bad either–probably my second favorite. I bet you could make them with a Betty Crocker chocolate g/f cake mix!

    My mom makes cake cookies with Butter Pecan cake mix and Bits O Brickle toffee chips. They are sooooo good right out of the oven!
