Gooey Cake Box Cookies
This next recipe is one that we make all the time at home. It’s quick, easy and the kids love them. They’re called Gooey Butter Cookies (aka Cake Mix Cookies). They are made with cake mix and are so moist and butter-y that I have yet to meet someone who didn’t like them. If you’re looking for a quick cookie recipe that will be a hit – this is your treat! What’s great is if you’re feeling like a cookie, but not necessarily the typical Chocolate Chip kind, this one is a great substitute! They’e pretty much half a cookie and half a cupcake, and you really can’t go wrong with that.
Another reason why I LOVE this recipe is because it can be easily changed up. Based on whatever cake mix you use, you can change the flavor up. You can also add candy and sprinkles on top or in the cookies which can take them to a whole new level. For this specific recipe, we always use a yellow cake mix, and just sprinkle powdered sugar on top right when they come out of the oven. The powdered sugar melts and lightly frosts the top of the cookie. It’s so yummy!!
How to Make Cookies from Cake Mix:
Making cookies from cake mix aren’t much different from making regular cookies, aside from the fact that they’re way simpler! Since the cake mix contains all the dry ingredients you need, you just have to add the wet ingredients to the mix! For this specific recipe, all you have to do is:
- Beat butter, vanilla, egg and cream cheese until fluffy.
- Mix in the cake mix until everything is well combined.
- Chill in the fridge for 3o minutes.
- Roll dough into balls and dip in a bowl of powdered sugar.
- Bake at 350° for 10-12 minutes, and sift powdered sugar on top if you like!
I have tried so many varieties of these cake mix cookies in the past, so be sure to check them out at the end of the post. The Gooey Monster Cookies are especially popular with the kids, and especially around Halloween. 😉
