Cake Mix cookies

I'm really not a baker.  I like to make treats with my kids and for my kids.  I like to eat all kinds of baked goods. But I really don't like being precise and measuring out a whole bunch of ingredients.  So when my friend posted a picture of some yummy cookies on Facebook and said they were made from a cake mix, I jumped on that recipe (Thanks, Anna!)

Because I made ours with three little helpers, they weren't perfectly uniform or as pretty as the ones my friend made, but the cookies were super easy & fun to make and tasty too.  (Plus, I didn't even have to get out my mixer! ;)  )

We made ours with the Funfetti Cake Mix, but I'm sure you could use just about any cake flavor.


  • One box of cake mix
  • 1/3 cup of oil
  • 2 eggs
  • frosting and sprinkles (optional)
1.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

2.  Dump the cake mix, oil and eggs in a bowl and mix with a large spoon until it's all combined.  (See, I told you it was easy!)

3.  Scoop out by rounded tablespoons and form into balls.  (I'm sure you could make them smaller as well).  Place 2 inches apart on a cookie sheet.

See, we're not terribly precise with our balls of dough.

4.  Use the bottom of a glass to flatten each ball to about 1/4 inch thickness.  ( Dip the glass in flour first if you find that it's sticking )

Flattened slightly with a glass.

5.  Bake for 6-8 minutes or until the edges are light golden brown.  Ours took a little bit longer, but some were kind of big and my oven's temperature isn't always accurate. Remove from pan and put cookies on a cooling rack.

6.  If desired, add a little bit of frosting and sprinkles while the cookies are still warm.

  7. لقد اثبت الدراسات والبحوث ان العيش في بيئة مغلقة ورديئة التهوية يعد من الأسباب التي تتسبب في الاكتئاب والإحباط للكثير من الأشخاص وهو ما يزيد في حالة كون المنزل غير نظيف لطلب شركة نظافة بالرياض وليس فقط سيء التهوية لذلك يحاط الأشخاص بطاقة إيجابية حينما يتواجدوا في بيئة صحية ونظيفة شركة تنظيف بالرياض وخاصة وأن الطاقة الإيجابية تدفع للانتهاء من كافة أعمال التنظيف وانجاز الأنشطة الآخرى في وقت قصير وبذلك تتحسن الحالة النفسية بتحسن النظافة.
