Recipes using cake mix or refrigerated cookie dough?

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Hi, does anyone have any recipes that start with a cake mix or the refrigerated cookie dough they can share? I'm looking to start my cookie baking for X-mas and I need easy and quick recipes. I work full time and go to school at night so I need to spend the least time in the kitchen as possible.

Thanks,
Naty

Well, it's not doctored but I can tell you that the Betty Crocker Sugar Cookie dough in a pouch (near the cake mix and stuff) is REALLY good. I only use that if I'm in a hurry or just need a smaller amount of dough. It probably wouldn't be cost efficient to make these if you needed a lot of cookies. It sure saves time though!

Use the Toll House cookie dough instead of the Pillsbury. The Pillsbury ones taste great out of the oven, but the chemical taste spreads thru them. The Toll House cookies taste great. I made a lot of instant cookies when my dd was a toddler and wanted to bake. icon_smile.gif

You could get the sugar TH dough and add sprinkles, mini m&m's, andes chips, or mini kisses. TH may already have all the different flavors you need.

Naty I don't blame you a bit. I had these cookies to make to put on and around cakes (1 before and 1 this weekend)...I do NOT feel like making a huge batch of some cookies to just make a few for the actual cake (and what, the rest in my belly??) And sometimes I just don't feel like doing it. The BC pouch is really good, just doesn't yield a whole bunch of cookies.
Here's to the holidays and being lazy sometimes! thumbs_up.gif

Here is a cookie recipe I make at Christmas all the time using cake mix.

Chocolate Oreos

2 Duncan Hines Devils Food Cake Mixes
4 Eggs
2/3 cuo Oil
Mix together. Roll into 1 inch balls (melon baller works great and gives uniform cookies). Bake for 8 minutes at 375 F on ungreased cookie sheets. Cool cookies and spread with filling, sandwich cookies.

Filling:
8 oz. pkg Cream Cheese
3 to 4 cups icing sugar
1/2 cup Butter
2 Tbls Vanilla
cream together.

Variations:
1. Use mint extract and a drop of green food coloring for Mint Oreos (my favorites)
2. Use Cherry extract and chopped cherries for Black Forest Oreos
3. Use Spice Cake mixes and Maple extract in filling for Maple Spice Oreos
4. Use Lemon Cake mixes and Almond extract in filling for Lemon Almond Oreos.

**Keep refrigerated. They freeze well, look nice and make alot of cookies, great for exchanges.

Hope this helps, I have some others but I am at my sisters right now, will look when I get home.

Thank you freddie for the recipe. I sounds delicious and I like al the variations you can make. How long can they be frozen? Do you freeze them with the filling and all? Also, please, if you have anymore easy recipes ones like this one, please share with me. Either here, pm or at :

Thanks again,

I have a book that has alot of ideas in it...101 to be exact. The name of the book is 101 More Things To Do With A Cake Mix written by Stephanie Ashcraft. It has everything from cinnamon rolls and sticky buns to cookies, brownies and other deserts all made from cake mixes.

This is a recipe I got from a paperback cookbook a while back, it is super easy.

Cake mix cookies

1 cake mix
1/3 cup of oil
2 eggs

Stir all ingredients together with a spoon. Roll into 1 inch balls, roll in granulated or powdered sugar. Place 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet, and bake at 350 degrees 8-10 minutes, or just until set.

I usually use the devils food cake mix, or a lemon. I will sometimes turn one chocolate cookie over, place a marshmallow on it, and microwave it for 10-15 seconds. Then I put another cookie on top of it to make a sandwich. My family loves these!
Each recipe makes about 3 dozen.

I have also used an orange cake mix (very tasty!), and a white cake mix. When I used the white cake mix, I rolled the dough in colored sprinkles. They were very pretty.

Thank you for sharing the recipe. It sure sounds easy and that is the whole purpose of the Holidays....you know when you have 3 parties on the same day and you offered to bake something.
