- 1 box of your favorite cake mix (flavor of your choice)
- 2 large eggs
- 1/2 cup vegetable oil or melted butter
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- Optional: Add-ins such as chocolate chips, nuts, or sprinkles
- Preheat Oven: Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and line baking sheets with parchment paper.
- Mix Ingredients: In a large mixing bowl, combine the cake mix, eggs, vegetable oil (or melted butter), and vanilla extract. Stir until well combined. The mixture will be thick and sticky.
- Add Optional Mix-ins: If you’re using any additional ingredients like chocolate chips, nuts, or sprinkles, fold them into the cookie dough until evenly distributed.
- Form Cookie Dough Balls: Scoop out tablespoon-sized portions of the cookie dough and roll them into balls. Place the dough balls on the prepared baking sheets, leaving some space between each.
- Bake: Bake in the preheated oven for 8-10 minutes, or until the edges are set and the tops are just beginning to crack. Be cautious not to overbake to keep the cookies soft and chewy.
- Cool: Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheets for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.
- Enjoy: Once the cookies are completely cooled, enjoy these quick and easy cake mix cookies with a glass of milk or your favorite beverage.
- Experiment with different cake mix flavors to create unique cookie variations.
- Feel free to get creative with mix-ins like white chocolate chips, chopped nuts, or dried fruit.
- If you want a different texture, try adding a few tablespoons of cream cheese to the cookie dough.
These cake mix cookies are a versatile and tasty treat that you can customize to suit your preferences.
