We attended our first summer potluck this weekend, and there are many more to come! With busy schedules, school still in session (four more weeks–ugh!), and too much to do, you need an easy-peasy recipe like these Cake Mix Cookies to bring and enjoy. There’s just three ingredients–unless you want to add some sprinkles to the top, then it’s four.
Cake Mix Cookies
- 1 package cake mix, any flavor (we love devil’s food)
- ½ cup oil or butter, melted
- 2 eggs
Heat oven to 350 degrees. Combine all three ingredients in a large bowl and stir until dough forms. Either scoop onto cookie sheet or shape into 1-inch balls (it’s easier if you chill it first). Bake 8-10 minutes or until center is set. Let cool on the pan for 1-2 minutes, then transfer cookies to wire racks to cool completely. Makes about 30 cookies.
This is one of those “base” recipes that you can take in any direction. Try a different flavor of cake mix, or add some mini chocolate chips, crushed Oreos, or chopped almonds to the tops.
Do you have any favorite baking supplies? I do! I love my Wilton 3-Tier Cooling Rack Set (that’s my Amazon link–thanks for supporting MoneywiseMoms at no cost to you!). For less than $10, you get three racks that stack and give you plenty of room to work.
