I found a bunch of cake mix cookie recipes to use with all those cake mixes you may have picked up at Albertson's from the last sale. I plan on giving cake mix(probably in a mason jar), frosting and these recipes to neighbors and teachers this year for Christmas. It's never too soon to start thinking about presents.
Cake Mix Recipe 1:
1 pkg. any flavor Pillsbury Plus Cake Mix
1/2 c. margarine or butter, softened
Combine all ingredients at low speed until thoroughly moistened. Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake at 350 for 9-12 minutes. Cool two minutes; remove from pans.
Tips: If using chocolate cake mix, add 2 Tbsp. water to ingredients
If desired, stir in 1 c. chocolate chips or 1/2 c. chopped nuts.
If desired, frost cookies with your favorite flavor of frosting.
For sandwich cookies, spread frosting between 2 cookies.
Cake Mix Cookie Recipe 2:
Yields about 4 dozen cookies
1 box cake mix (any variety)
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips (can substitute caramel or peanut butter chips or do a combination)
1/ 2 -1 cup oatmeal (I always put in as much as I can!)
1 /2 cup oil
2 eggs, slightly beaten
1/ 2 cup raisins (optional)
1 tsp. vanilla (optional)
Preheat oven to 350. In a large bowl, combine all the ingredients, blending well. If the mixture is too stiff, add a little water. Drop dough by rounded teaspoonfuls 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake at 350 for 8-10 minutes or until set. Cool 1 minute before removing form the cookie sheets.
For altitudes above 3500 feet, add 1/ 4 cup flour to dry cake mix.
Variation: Use white cake mix and add a pudding mix. I added strawberry, for tasty pink cookies. If you use pudding, you will need to add some water (about 1/4 cup). Also, the pudding tends to make the cookies sweeter.
Cake Mix Cookie Recipe 3:
Yields about 2 dozen.
1 (9 oz.) pkg. yellow cake mix (or your favorite flavor)
2/3 cup oatmeal
1/2 cup butter or margarine, melted
*1/2 cup chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, peanut butter chips, M&Ms (your preference)
* For a healthier cookie, substitute raisins in place of the chips.
Preheat oven to 375. In a mixing bowl, beat the cake mix, oatmeal, butter and egg. Stir in the chips. Drop by tablespoonfuls 2 inches apart onto ungreased baking sheets. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until lightly browned. Immediately remove to wire racks to cool.
I think they all look so good. I may have to make some soon just to see what they are like. Yummy!
