Jocmom, I had to try the red velvet with white chips. They were awesome!!! My kids devoured them in no time!!!

I also made some with the "Rainbow Chip" cake mix & the special white swirled chocolate chips that are out for Christmas. (They're white/red & white/green swirl). They've been eaten up too!

My mother in law introduced me to cake mix cookies a few years ago. I've experimented with a few different combos, but I'm going to have to try some of these.

I've only ever made them with cake mix, a stick of butter, and an egg. Does the oil make them puffier?

This is what I think I'm going to experiment with this weekend.

Gooey butter:

Butter recipe cake mix
gooey butter cake topping (the cream cheese part of the top of the cake)

I figure I can make the cookie, put a thumbprint and a dab of the cream cheese mixture. I hope they turn out ok. DH loves gooey butter cake, so I figured a cookie might be good.

Egg Nog:

White cake mix
rum extract
nutmeg

Cherry almond:

Cherry cake mix
Ground almonds
almond extract

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

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.

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
