I discovered these cake mix cookies one day when I had a hankering for cookies but not a lot of motivation to bake! I had a cake mix though, and so I went looking to see if you can make cookies with cake mix?

The answer. Yes!

Yes, and they are so incredibly easy!

The great thing about these is that you can use pretty much any cake mix and mix in your favorite cookie add-ins and have an endless variety of super easy cookies!

My family loves these made with Funfetti cake mix, and strawberry cake mix with chocolate chips is another one of our favorites!

Step by step pictures of cake mix cookies.

Preheat your oven to 350, and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. The parchment is optional but it will help the cookies not to stick.

In a mixing bowl combine your cake mix, vanilla, oil and eggs. It will form a soft dough.

Scoop the dough onto your prepared cookie sheet using a spoon or dough scoop leaving about 2 inches in between.

Bake for 8-10 minutes, remove from the oven and allow to cool on the baking sheet for 3-4 minutes.

Remove from the baking sheet to a cooling rack to cool completely.
