I have a couple of boxed cake mixes I want to use up.

Has anyone ever made boxed mix cookies? How do they taste? Are they crispy or soft? Have you ever sold them, and for how much?

Also, what recipe do you use?

Thanks so much!

I made some in Chef camp with the kids an they were wonderful!!

I have since tried, different recipes, and they haven't been as good. I have been trying to find the recipe we used. It seems like it was something like a mix, cream cheese, an maybe a egg?? icon_rolleyes.gif

I would love some recipes, I stink at baking real cookies and those were good! icon_smile.gif

I have read that these are really good, but have never tried them, as we are not normally cookie eaters.

I thought this would be a good way to use up some older cake mixes, instead of baking a cake which might not rise up so well anymore.

If you find that recipe, please share it with me?

Thanks -

I make them all the time. Here's the basic recipe:

1 cake mix (18.5 oz)
2 eggs
1/2 cup shortening
1-3 Tbsp water

Mix all. Then add all kinds of variations...

Choc cake mix: Add peanut butter chips, chocolate chips, andes mint chips (these taste like girl scout mint thins!), roll the dough balls in powdered sugar before baking for "choc crackles", mini-m&m's, heath toffee bits.

When baking the chocolate cookies, take them out of the oven when they are just starting to get firm on the sides. The tops of the cookie will still looking really doughy, but they will set up fine. They are even better if you bake on parchment paper ... let them sit on the baking sheet on the parchment paper and they set up great.

White cake mix: choc chips, mini M&M's, heath toffee bits

I was looking to bake up something quick and easy, and gee, it can't get much easier than that!

Thanks again -

2 more options for the choc cake mix:

- Add some chopped marschino cherries; use cherry juice instead of water. When cookies cool, drizzle some white chocolate over the top. you now have "Chocolate Covered Cherry Cookies".

- Walmart just started carrying carmel chips (like choc chips). Add these and some crushed pecans or walnuts to make Turtle Cookies. You can also drizzle some melted carmel over the top for that extra zip!
