Cake Mix Cookies …such an easy and delicious recipe made with only 3 ingredients! Customize with your favorite mix-in’s!

We’ve shared a few different cake mix cookies, such as the strawberry cookieschocolate mint cookies, grinch cookies and red velvet gooey cookies, but I thought it was about time I shared the original cake mix cookie recipe. Now I’m not sure who the original creator of this recipe is, but I first saw it in a church cookbook I received many years ago and have made many different variations ever since. This cookie is great for when you need to make something quick and don’t have a lot of ingredients. I don’t know about you, but I pretty much always have a box of cake mix, oil and eggs on hand.

How to Make Cake Mix Cookies

Basically all you need to make these cake mix cookies is a box of cake mix, oil and eggs. Then all you’re going to do is mix the ingredients together until the dough is smooth. Then add any mix-in’s if you’d like. I also like to refrigerate the dough, so it’s easier to work with. It tends to be a little stickier than your typical cookie dough because of the oil. You can find the printable recipe below.

Cake Mix Cookies

Prep Time: 10

Cook Time: 10

Total Time: 20

Ingredients:

  • 1 (15.25 ounce) box cake mix
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 large eggs
  • Mix-in's: Chocolate chips, M&M's, Rolos, etc. (optional)

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with a silicone mat or parchment paper and set aside.

Combine the cake mix, oil and eggs in a large bowl. Stir together until combined. If you have the time, refrigerate the dough for 15-20 minutes (it will make it a little easier to work with, since it is sticky).

Using a medium scoop or spoon, scoop the dough onto the prepared baking mat. Bake for 9-11 minutes, or until the cookies are set. You don't want them to brown. Allow to cool on the pan for a couple minutes and then transfer to a cooling rack.

Once cooled, melt the chocolate and then dip half the cookie into the chocolate. Lay cookies onto a wax paper and add sprinkles if desired.
