Whip up a batch of these cookies in just 20 minutes!

We’re heading into baking season (and bake sale season… and cookie exchange season…!) and while we have favourite classics, it’s always fun to try something new. I recently tried this cake mix cookie recipe from MomEh and it’s safe to say we’ll be making them again. Sometimes you just want a recipe that’s quick and easy, no fuss, and these cake mix cookies are perfect for that- especially if you’re looking for ideas to make for bake sales and cookie exchanges! 

Ingredients

1 box of cake mix (I used the one with sprinkles already mixed in)

1/2 cup softened butter or vegetable oil

1 egg

Optional: food colouring and/ or sprinkles 

Directions

  1. Preheat oven according to cake mix and line cookie sheet with parchment paper
  2. Combine wet ingredients in one bowl and dry ingredients in another (if your cake mix doesn’t have sprinkles already mixed in, add them to the dry ingredients). Mix together until batter is a smooth consistency
  3. Roll into approx 1 tsp size balls, spacing them about 2″ apart
  4. Bake for 10- 15 minutes or until edges start to turn golden brown.
  5. Allow to cool and enjoy!

The cookies in this post were made using a regular cake mix, but we also made a batch using a gluten-free cake mix and they turned out just as delicious.

Tip: If you make these cookies using a gluten-free cake mix, simply scoop batter onto cookie sheets if you can’t get the batter to form a ball.

For this recipe, I used a Betty Crocker Cake Mix and added sprinkles, but we’ve tried a few different gluten-free cake mixes including Kinnikinnick, and XO Baking CO and have enjoyed them. Your local grocery store probably carries some, but you can also find a variety on Amazon
