This year the kids and I are participating in a large cookie exchange. We tested TONS of recipes (no one was complaining) and found the perfect ones! These cookies are so simple. With only four ingredients they really are amazing. I tested these out on my co-workers, friends at Thanksgiving and the neighbors and they were a hit!
It’s very simple. Buy a box of cake mix, add ingredients and bake. That’s it. They are guaranteed to turn out soft and chewy every time! We tied SEVERAL combinations and we liked them all. I am really convinced that you can not go wrong with any combination!
Cake batter cookie recipe!
1 box of cake mix
1 tsp baking POWDER
1/3 cup vegetable oil (Others work fine also)
Yes, that is really it! Although you can add any mix-ins that you want. I will include some of our combinations after the instructions!
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Mix eggs, oil and baking powder in a bowl until combined. Slowly add dry cake mix. You want the batter to by thick so you can roll it into balls.
Now is the time to add mix-ins. This could be nuts, chocolate chips, candy pieces, dried fruits. You make up your own fun combinations and report back!
Roll into 1.5 inch balls and place on a baking sheet. We used a pampered chef stoneware, so we did not need it greased, but you may.
Bake at 350 degrees for about 25 minutes or until slightly golden brown.
Remove and let cool on cookie sheet for a few minutes and then transfer to a wire rack.
