4 Ingredient Cake Mix Cookies



I just LOVE these cookies! They are so easy to make and I always have the ingredients on hand. I've tried lots of different cake mix flavors.  My favorites are these lemon ones and devil's food cake ones.  The latter taste like a cross between a cookie and a brownie.  Mmmmm!


All you need are FOUR ingredients:
  • one box of cake mix
  • 1/3 cup oil
  • 2 eggs
  • powdered sugar




Preheat oven to 350. Mix by hand cake mix, oil, and eggs. Roll dough into 24 - 1 1/2 inch balls. Roll each ball in powdered sugar to coat and place on a silpat or ungreased baking sheet.  Flatten slightly with the palm of your hand.











Bake for 6-8 minutes. The sides will just *barely* start to turn golden brown and there will be lots of pretty crinkles on the top.  You almost want them to be under-done so they don't dry out and have a nice chewy texture.

  2. I just made these because my family needed a quick cookie fix, and they were delicious and chewy and light! I might have overmixed because the dough was a bit gloopy and soft, but i popped it in the freezer for a bit, and then they spread beautifully in the oven.
    Thanks!

  3. My Mom made a vegan version of these for me using lemon cake mix and Follow Your Vegan Egg. She made a glaze for them using lemon juice, powdered sugar and some non dairy milk. They were the best cookies I've ever had. Thanks for the recipe!

  4. Do you think the dough could be divided and then add different food coloring gel to it to make the cookies different colors, assuming you are using a basic white cake mix? I was thinking green for Halloween and pressing wilton eyeballs into them to make monster cookies because the monster cookie recipe I found on Pinterest seemed to be problematic for some people.
