Whenever I am in a pinch for time and need cookies I make cake mix cookies.  I am such a fan of these super quick and delicious cookies (remember these?–really they are the best). Seriously in less time than it would take for you to go to the store to buy cookies you can bake these yummy cookies.


I am all about the cake mix. For sugar cookies I love Duncan Hines French Vanilla Moist Deluxe cake mix. For the Chocolate cookies I love Aldi’s Devil’s Food cake mix.


Cake Mix Sugar Cookies


1 Cake Mix
2 Eggs
1/3 – 1/2 Cup canola oil (I used 1/2 cup this time. A 1/3 cup works great also -the batter is slightly more stiff so slightly flatten your balls)


Mix well and scoop (I use a 2 Tablespoon scoop) onto a parchment lined cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees  for 10 – 13 minutes. Cookies will be soft.  Makes 20 cookies.

  7. My 12 yr old chef-in-training son made these and wow, they were dynamite! He used French vanilla w/ canned frosting, adding a touch of almond extract. Will definitely be making these again.

  8. Tried these with Bob’s Redmill Gluten-Free vanilla cake mix… I only made one alteration: added some lemon juice (because i’m not a huge fan of the nutty flavor of the mix) and they turned out great!
