Easy Cake Mix Cookies

A super fun and easy recipe using a cake mix that you can alter for any mix. These strawberry ones were awesome! cake-mix-cookies-recipe-_-so-easy-and-fun!


When my mom was in town, she asked Boss what he wanted to do and like he does a lot at our house, he whined to “make a treat” which is basically, my mom’s love language.

So, we looked in the pantry and found the cake mix, though he was whining for cookies, “NOT cupcakes!” he whined… mom and I looked at each other and without saying anything, nodded the “yeah, we got this” and did what we two do in the kitchen. {bump butts and communicate without words and make crap happen}.

I have been making cake mix cookies for a while cause the kids love them, they have 4 ingredients or less, and usually are a fun color and have fun flavors…

We went with strawberry and added cute sprinkles for fun this time. Done. So cute and tasty, and would be perfect for a shower or party cause they whip up fast and they are super soft!

Easy Cake Mix Cookies


  • 1 box of cake mix
  • – amount of oil asked for on box {1/2 cup}
  • – 1 less egg than asked for {asked for 3, use 2}
  • – water asked for {1/2 cup}
  • 1/2 cup-3/4 cup flour
  • *optional- food coloring, chocolate chips, candy {i.e. chocolate cake mix with andes mints or peppermint…etc.}

what to do

Preheat oven to 350.

Mix all ingredients in a mixer, slowly adding the flour at the end. Dough should begin to thicken, but be soft like sugar cookie dough. Your recipe may need 3/4 cup flour as all cake mixes are slightly different.

Scoop into 1 inch circles and drop on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake at 350 for about 9 minutes or until the edges begin to turn golden. Pull immediately and leave on the cookie sheet for about 1 minute to cool before removing to the counter or cooling rack.
