Heck yeah! A lot of my cookie recipes start with a cake mix!

----------------------------
1 18.5 ounce cake mix
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 egg
3/4 cup oil
add whatever cookie additive you like: choc chips, M&M's, nuts, etc.

mix all, scoop into balls, bake at 375.

---------and---------------

1 18.5 ounce cake mix
2 eggs
1 Tbsp water (adjust as needed)
1/2 cup shortening
add whatever cookie additive you like.
We use chocolate cake mix, then roll the balls in p.sugar for "chocolate crackles"

---------and----------------

1 lemon cake mix
1/2 cup soft butter
2 eggs
1 cup p.sugar + extra for coating

mix all, roll into balls, roll in the extra p.sugar. Bake 350 until edges are JUST brown. (Don't overbake!) When cool, drizzle with melted white chocolate.

These lemon cookies are the ones that my granddaughter INSISTS that her Banna make for Santa Claus. Even tho' her mom can make them, she just KNOWS that if they're not BANNA'S cookies, then Santa won't leave her as many toys. THese are also the cookies that when I sent them in on the cookie order for the car dealership, when the word got out that "Lemon Cookies are in the order today!" there was a stampede for these cookies!

My son brought this recipe home from school one day and said they were very good (and this is coming from a picky teenager who doesn't really eat cookies). I haven't tried it yet, but I'm glad to see someone else thinks they are good icon_smile.gif

omg, lemon cakes mixes are considered GOLD in my house! I can get my son in law to do ANYTHING I need computer-wise (it's what he does for a living) ... all I have to do is mention, "there's lemon cookies in it for you!" icon_rolleyes.gificon_biggrin.gif

The batter is very sticky. If you have any of the food safety gloves, I strongly recommend wearing those to roll them in the p.sugar. It's just less messy.

Thanks for the heads up on sticky.

I just got off the phone with a friend describing this new jewel. She can't wait for the experiments that are going to happen tonight!

You rock, Debi!

You must try Gooey Butter Cookies...they are unbelievable. They just melt in your mouth. They are so simple too! Here is a link to the recipe that I use. Using a yellow BUTTER cake mix actually gets them more like the taste of a Gooey Butter Cake (the recipe just says yellow). Chilling the dough for at least 30 minutes really helps with the stickiness factor, as does coating your finger tips with the powdered sugar you roll them in. Make them pretty small because they are really really rich!

Hi there....I made delicious cookies to give away as X-Mas gifts. I started with a cake mix and added 1/2 cup of oil, and 2 eggs. Mixed well. I used a small ice cream scoop and placed 2 inches apart on my Siltpad (I love this stuff), anyway I flattened them a bit so they would bake as flat cookies and not round mounds (the mix does not spread out). Bake at 350 10 - 12 minutes. I did about 15 for crispy cookies. They came out delicious!!!! I made chocolate, lemon, and carrot cake cookies. I also made coconut cookies. I make the coconut cookies every year b/c everyone loves them and they are super easy: 1 can condensed milk, 1 bag sweetened flaked coconut (14 oz.), 2 tsp. vanilla extract, and 1 tsp. vanilla extract. Mix well and drop by teaspoons (I recommend using a Siltpad). They are very sticky so you need 2 teaspoons to actually do this right. You bake at 350 for 10 - 14 minutes. They will spread a bit and the edges will brown. They are chewy cookies. I have also added a bit of marachino juice (instead of the vanilla) and added chopped marachino cherries. You can't eat just one.
Sorry but did not take pictures icon_sad.gif . Half of them are gone already!!

Merry Christmas and a great 2010 to all icon_smile.gif

A little off subject, but what is a Siltpad?

Thanks for the recipes, I'll have to try them. Never made cookies with cake mix before.

I think it depends on the recipe because all of mine spread really well. Matter of fact, when anyone makes those lemon cookies, be sure to leave PLENTY of room between the cookies!

The first recipe I listed (with the brown sugar) doesn't spread very much, but the other two spread nicely.

OMG I was just planning on making a bunch of these for the first time. A coworker brought some into work the other day and then shared the recipe. They were so good!!! Here is the recipe she used. Super easy and so yummy. I plan on playing with the recipe some to make other flavors, chocolate, strawberry, and lemon. Can't wait!!

1 box of Yellow Cake Mix (or Chocolate)
1 8oz. package of cream cheese
1/2 cup of butter (1 stick)
1/4 tsp of Vanilla extract
1 egg
1/4 cup of powdered sugar

I'm sorry icon_redface.gif I mispelled it. It is Silpat. It's a silicone baking mat that is awesome. Practically nothing sticks to it. Here is the site: http://www.silpat.com

I got mine at Bed Bath and Beyond for about $20. If you don't have one, I guess you can use parchment paper instead.

Thank you for your input! I had made the carrot cake ones originally with 1/4 cup melted butter, 1 egg yolk, and 1 - 8 oz. cream cheese. (I got the recipe from The Cake Mix Doctor Returns book). So I dropped them by teaspoons and they did not spread at all! so I redid them with the oil and eggs instead and that is when they worked.

By the way, have you made biscotti from a cake mix? I did last year; and while they tasted wonderful, I had trouble cutting them after the 1st bake. Eventhough I used a serrated knife, they broke off and fell apart. Any ideas?

Thanks,
Naty
