Cake Mix Cookies – Quick and Delicious!

About a year ago, I discovered the magic of CAKE MIX COOKIES. Cookie making can be an elaborate art form, but sometimes you want quick and dirty! I always have a few boxes of cake mix in my pantry, and whipping up couple dozen cookies takes no time at all when using a boxed mix. Here’s what you do:

  1. Open boxed cake mix of your choice and pour into mixing bowl
  2. Add one egg
  3. Add one stick of melted butter
  4. Mix with a spoon until combined
  5. Bake into cookies!

So, so easy. We’ve done this with lots of different mixes, and it’s fun to mix in different things – our favorite is Devil’s Food Cake Mix with Reese’s Pieces! Today, we did Butter Pecan cake mix with butterscotch chips. The cookies were out of this world!

I love making fancy desserts with my kiddos, but this is something they can do completely on their own in just a few minutes after school. Try it!
