My New Favorite Cake Mix Cookie
One of the things that I love most about writing a blog (as opposed to… oh, I dunno, a cookbook or something) is that everything is so flexible. I don’t have to commit myself to just one version of a recipe for life!
For instance… not all that long ago, I told you that these were my favorite cake mix cookies. And little while before that, I told you that these were my favorites. And while they’re both great recipes, they each have their tiny little flaws. Specifically: the first recipe produces somewhat sporadic results. A lot of the time, it’s right on! But every once in a while, it yields a batch that spreads to thin.
And both recipes call for way more ingredients than I really think should be necessary in a cake mix based cookie recipe. This new cake mix cookie recipe is both simplified and fool-proof. No chill time required, and you can even mix it easily by hand with a spoon in less than a minute. They don’t turn out flat or greasy, and they hold up well to lots of mix-ins.
I have made batch after batch of these cookies in the past few months (check out these Lemon White Chocolate Cookies and these Carrot Cake Crinkle Cookies), and I haven’t had a failed, questionable, or difficult batch yet! I’m so excited to share with you my newest, latest, and greatest recipe for Cake Mix Cookies!
I love classic chocolate chip cookies as much as the next guy (maybe more!), but I think Cake Mix Cookies definitely have their place in any home cook’s repertoire. They’re quick and easy, but even better– they allow you to experiment with a vast variety of flavors! Cake mixes come in all sorts of flavors year round, with even more available seasonally. This means the sky is the limit when it comes to cookie making!
Here are some yummy suggested variations using different types of cake mix:
