Best Ever White Cake Mix Cookies

Who likes some Easy with a lot of Yum?!

These came about as I was searching in my baking cupboard for something to come up with when I pulled out a white cake mix.  I thought, "Why ever would I buy a white cake mix when I hate white cake?!" I've made cookies with cake mixes before, but I was never super pleased with them so I decided to play around with the recipe a little until I came up with something I loved enough to share.  I just wish they made a bigger batch, because it's hard to stop eating them (and the dough!!).

Kammy's White Cake Mix Cookies

1 box of white cake mix
1 egg
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup oil
1 tsp almond flavor
1/2 tsp vanilla flavor
Suggested additions: sprinkles, hershey kisses, heath bits, crushed peppermints

Preheat oven to 350.  Stir all ingredients together until thoroughly mixed.  Roll dough into desired size balls (I made mine slightly smaller than a ping pong ball).  Try not to eat the batter, or you won't have many cookies.  For the sprinkle cookies, I put the clear crystal sprinkles in a dish and lightly pressed the top of the dough ball into the sprinkles and then placed on the cookie sheet.  For the Hershey kisses, I sliced each kiss in half (yes, I even conserve money when I bake) and pressed it lightly down into the middle of each dough ball.  Bake for 9 minutes.

Spread Christmas cheer and bring some to your neighbors.

  1. Easy,pretty, and yummy--doesn't get any better than that!

  2. I'm assuming the cake mix makes these cookies super soft. Love soft cookies and these could not be simpler. Can't wait to try!
