Oh, and my MIL uses the yellow cake mix and wraps them around bite size snickers, so they have a candy center. Very tasty!

step0nmi Posted 21 Dec 2008 , 3:14am

so this is a question I don't see answered...

what is the amount of liquid you should be using with the lighter cake mixes?

I tried making regular yellow cake mix with cc's with the: 1 mix, 1 egg, 1/3 cup water, 1/2 stick butter... and they came out soo runny icon_razz.gif I am thinking now that less water may have been in order but I just don't know. icon_sad.gif


btw, these cookies are what my family is getting for xmas!! i am soo addicted to them! icon_biggrin.gif

You probably baked them too long. It's really easy to do. They go from soft and yummy to crunchy in no time flat icon_lol.gif Been there, done that icon_cry.gif I notice that when I can smell them, they are done.

Easy Mix Lemon Crinkles
From: Pillsbury Family Fun Cookbook

1 package Pillsbury Plus Lemon Cake Mix
4 oz container (1 3/4 cups) frozen whipped topping, thawed
3 Tablespoons oil
1 egg, slightly beaten
Sugar or colored sugar

In large bowl, combine cake mix, whipped topping, oil and egg; mix thoroughly. Cover; chill dough 1 hour for easier handling.

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease cookie sheets. Shape dough into 1-inch balls; roll in sugar. Place 2 inches apart on prepared cookie sheets. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes or until light golden brown around edges. Allow cookies to cool 1 minute before removing from cookie sheets. Cool completely. Store cookies in tightly covered container. 3 1/2 dozen cookies.

Note: May use other flavors of cake mix, such as strawberry.

Just something a little different to try--although the chocolate ones sound yummy, too!




I am so ging to try this recipe. My MIL loves lemon cake! I baked my first cake mix cookies last night and they were sooo good. I used a recipe from the site JanH told us about, recipegoldmine. I did a coconut cookie with the coconut cake mix instead of the yellow they have and changed the almond to vanilla extract. I love cake mix cookies!

Try looking at the web site JanH posted recipegoldmine.com. It has lots of recipes and you can compare different ones to see the liquid amounts. The one I used was 1/2 cup water and 1/3 oil and they came out perfect using regular DH mix. Hope this helps.

goof9j Posted 24 Dec 2008 , 12:08pm

OK Ladies, I am looking for a yellow cake mix cookie that I can use my cookie cutters on. They were awsome tasting and iced, but soooooo soft.
I am almost sure she used a cake mix, but this person will not give out her recipe. Can any one help icon_cry.gif

Those Rainbow Chip ones sound good . . . then again I haven't found a bad combination yet. icon_lol.gif

I've learned to make double or triple batches if I want to take any to work. I have to have a batch at home for the guys to eat or they feel deprived.

I've never made these before, but wanted soft cookies for the meals-on-wheels... I got this recipe from Stephanie over on mrssurvival.
Cherry Chocolate Cookies
1 chocolate cake mix,
1/2 cup oil
3 eggs
handful of shredded coconut and cherry chips
Combine into stiff batter , drop by rounded spoonfuls, bake at 375 , for about 10 minutes.
-
I used a cup of maraschino cherries, chopped, instead of the chips and coconut. It was a nice texture dough, very glossy; we made 48 balls - or would have if folks hadn't kept stealing the dough as they went by! They smell divine!
-------
edited to add: The tops crinkled, with a slight pinkish tinge from the cherries. Needed to sit for a few seconds on the cookie sheet before trying to remove them.
They are yummy; rather like brownies. I think they would be good as bar cookies. The texture was like a bar cookie, not like a cake.

Will definitely bake again

Sheesh, I wonder how I missed this thread!! What great ideas! Thanks for posting! icon_biggrin.gif

Lorendabug Posted 25 Dec 2008 , 7:09pm

I am so glad I saw this thread! I had some cake mix cookies a while ago that were just amazing. I have been looking for recipes since.

So many recipes so little time!

nickshalfpint Posted 29 Dec 2008 , 4:06pm

We made spice cookies with cinnamon chips and they were soooo good. They were the first ones gone at christmas dinner.

7yyrt Posted 11 Jan 2009 , 8:19am

I asked this over on another thread, but haven't received an answer...
I have an 'apple cinnamon fat-free' muffin mix my mother in law didn't want. Has anyone tried making cookies with a muffin mix?

fiddlesticks Posted 11 Jan 2009 , 2:35pm

I have not tried that but it sounds like a good way to use up some mixes, If you do try let us know please.
Maybe they would just get puffier? Or maybe your on to a whole new craze he he! Muffin mix cookies !!!

7yyrt Posted 6 Feb 2009 , 5:53am

Bumping. Lots of questions about these, lately.

JaimeAnn Posted 6 Feb 2009 , 6:33am

My favorite way to make cake mix cookies is to add White chocolate chunks and macadamia nuts to the devils food cake mix cookie recipe.

After the cookies have cooled I make them into ice cream sandwiches with softened french vanilla ice cream. Smash them together a little bit so that the ice cream bulges slightly from between the cookies, then roll the ice cream edge in chopped macadamia nuts and mini chocolate chips. put them in the freezer to firm up then seal them in ziplock baggies and back to the freezer.

It is also pretty awesome made with coffee flavored ice cream for a great adult ice cream sandwich.

Melvira Posted 6 Feb 2009 , 2:57pm

Oh JaimeAnn... I am SO gonna do that. YUM!

Dinny2222 Posted 6 Feb 2009 , 8:48pm

YUM YUM YUM I want some NOW!

7yyrt Posted 17 Nov 2009 , 10:46pm

Whatever happened with this? Did you try it? Let us know! thumbs_up.gif

7yyrt Posted 17 Nov 2009 , 11:50pm

Hubby mixed it with pumpkin puree and extra spices and took them to work.
I have no idea how they tasted, there weren't any left for me!

Well, I think that speaks for itself, eh? thumbs_up.gif

sadsmile Posted 19 Nov 2009 , 8:24pm

This is insane! What a neat thing. I have my first batch in the oven right now. going simple with a yellow cake mix and hoping for that "to die for gooey butter cookie"...LOL

I has anyone topped these with RI?

Hey 7yyrt I always make muffin mix pan cakes. icon_wink.gif And turn oatmeal muffin mix into fantastically amazing pumpkin bread.

7yyrt Posted 19 Nov 2009 , 10:39pm

Do you do anything special to the mix?

teddybr218 Posted 23 Nov 2009 , 5:42pm

How about a yellow cake mix, almond extract, coconut and crushed pineapple, Drained well? This is so yummy, I just love it. My mom had a recipe for a Hawaiian drop cookie that was from scratch and every time I made it I did not like them, but when she made them they were wonderful and soft. Well this combo taste just like them only easier.

sadsmile Posted 23 Nov 2009 , 5:51pm

Yeah these are so good. I was thinking about adding macadamia nut pieces and chips.
