“C is for Cookie”

This week I begin FUN WEEK!  This week is my Stamp Club week which means I get together with 50 of my stamping friends to stamp, create, laugh, and just flat out have a good time.  I really look forward to this week and I am so excited about our “C is for Cookie” theme.  If you follow my blog, you know how much I love cookies!

Since July kicks off the beginning of the Stampin’ Up year for us demonstrators, I thought I would be nice to have some cookies for us to EAT while we STAMP.  I shared this recipe with you awhile back but I had a call from my stampin’ friend, Julie, in Texas.  She called to thank me for the recipe and shared some tips and yummy add-ins that she tried.  We chatted for about an hour about all the ways we could make these cookies.  Yeah, they are kind of an obsession now.

My daughter, Christina, is a better baker than me so she is on a Cookie frenzy today!  Here are her cookies she made for my Stamp Club girls!

CONNIE’S CAKE MIX COOKIES

  • 1 box cake mix, any flavor
  • 6 Tablespoons butter or margarine, melted
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • Add-ins, if desired (chocolate chips, nuts, raisins, etc)

Pre-heat the oven to 350°.  Place parchment paper on cookie sheet (not necessary but it sure is nice!).

Mix eggs and butter together.  Add cake mix and mix well.  Add add-ins if desired.  The dough will be “wet” but if it’s just too wet to work with, add about a 1/4 cup of powdered sugar.

Drop by teaspoon, roll into a ball, and roll into the powdered sugar to coat.  Place 12 balls on cookie sheet.  Bake for 10 minutes.  DO NOT OVER BAKE!  These cookies don’t brown and if they get overcooked they taste slightly burned. Let the cookies sit on the cookie sheet for 5 minutes before transferring on a cooling rack.    Makes 3 dozen cookies.

Some my favorites include

  • Butter Golden Cake mix with Butterscotch chips
  • Dark Chocolate Fudge Cake mix with Peanut Butter chips
  • Dark Chocolate Fudge Cake mix with Toffee Bits
  • Orange Supreme Cake mix with dried cranberries
  • Lemon Supreme Cake mix with White Chocolate chips
  • Strawberry Cake mix with White Chocolate chips
  • Funfetti Cake mix with candy sprinkles (yes, you need more than what comes in the mix)

I know you’re all probably hungry now but go check your pantry!  You probably already have a cake mix there!  It’s always a good day to bake cookies.  🙂

    Hope you ladies have a ton of fun! 😉

    CONNIE.. YES IT SI DELICOUS… YOU USE THE POSWER SUGAR.. I USE THE FLOUR INSTEAD TOO SWEET. I ALWAYS MAKE THIS CAKE MIX COOKIES ON HALLOWEEN TREATS FOR SCHOOL AND CHURCH . IT IS MUCH EASIER TO DO THAN REAL SCRATCH HOMEMADE COOKIES.
    THANKS FOR SHARING ABOUT POWDERED SUGAR.

    • Connie says:

      Personally, I would have used flour to “dry” it out a little but it wasn’t out… but the powdered sugar was. 🙂 Just had to use what was out on my counter. Best cookies ever!!!

    COONIE AGAIN, CAN MAKE THIS COOKIES FOR EARLY BIRD CHRISTMAS IN JULY BATCH TO GIVE OUT YOUR PEOPLE.

  4. Pat B says:

    OK, now my stomach is totally growling for these cookies. You are a bad influence!

    I have made these with the Choc. Fudge cake and choc. chips. Very good, also German Choc. Cake mix with coconut, nuts and choc chips……yummy! A friend suggested making these at Christmas with the Choc. Fudge cake mix and crushed peppermint candies. Sounds like a winner. Thanks for the recipe, Connie. I love it!!

    • Connie says:

      Oh! You’re killing me! Those all sound great (especially the German chocolate with coconut, nuts, and chocolate chips!!!) I must say, that is one thing I love most about this recipe – versatility! In the picture, we have dark chocolate with toffee bits. Good yes, but the dark chocolate overpowered the toffee. I have another box of the butter cake mix and I might try it in that. I think they may make caramel cake mix and it might be good in that too.

  6. Connie- my daughter loved this recipe from you. She made hers with a Red Velvet cake mix- a real hit! AND- she whipped up some cream cheese icing and made a sandwich cookie….yummy. Thanks again for the recipe.

    MMMMMMmmmmmmm these cookies look awesome

  8. Christine Ascoli says:

    I make the same cookie, which is always a hit wherever I take them. I was just wondering why you use the butter! You can make the same cookie replacing the butter with 8 oz of Cool Whip and then make them the same way. Thanks for sharing. Next time I will try your way, if I don’t have the Cool Whip!

    • Connie says:

      I have actually made them with cool-whip before and they are good but cool whip is $2 a tub and margarine is 25 cents. 🙂 I found the cool-whip ones to be SO goopy to work with…. but delish!

    Another “aWeSoMe” for Connie! I lost my recipe over 15 years ago, and have asked countless cookie bakers, who have looked at me like I’ve lost my mind when I said cookies from a cake mix! They are so quick, easy and delicious. Great for those drop in guests =^_^=
    Thank you Connie!
