Easy Cake Mix Cookies

I try to keep cake mix on hand so if I need to take something to someone quickly, I can always pull out this recipe and make it up in just a few minutes!


  • 1 box any flavor cake mix
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 cup oil


Mix ingredients together until smooth. Roll into 1 inch balls and place on a lightly greased cookie sheet. Use the bottom of a drinking glass to flatten slightly. Bake at 375 degrees F until the tops crackle (8-10 minutes). Cool and frost if desired.


(I have added nuts, chocolate chips and sprinkles before. You can use your own imagination! Our favorite is the chocolate with pecans with chunky chocolate in them. The strawberry also makes up good with the cream cheese icing in the tub.)

These cookies are fantastic! I used a Devils Food cake mix with powdered sugar on top. My husband and kids are "sweet-aholics" and seem to need their "fix" every evening after supper. This a very easy way to make a fantastic cookie in just a few minutes. After working all day, quick recipes like this one are very much appreciated. I am anxious to try different flavors!

I just bought [on closeout table] "Quick Fixes with Mixes" by Lia Roessner Wilson which has recipes for cakes, cookies, bars, and goodies. A really neat book. (09/04/2004)

Easy Cake Mix Cookies

I make these cookies often, using a variety of mixes and mix-ins. Some of our favorite mix-ins are mini chocolate chips, mini M and Ms, nuts, sprinkles (jimmies here in NH), and raisins. (09/06/2004)

Easy Cake Mix Cookies

I made these cookies last week and added 3 cups of quick oats, a cup of raisins, and about 3T of milk, made the best oatmeal raisin cookies you ever tasted. I used a spice cake mix, but think the next time I make these, I will put in a teaspoon or so of pumpkin pie spice to jazz them up. (03/25/2005)

These are so easy and so yummy! I just made them for a Christmas cookie exchange and crushed up candy canes to roll on top before baking, oh so good! Thank you. (12/12/2005)

Easy Cake Mix Cookies

We call these "cheater cookies". They will come out perfect every time. I substitute applesauce for the 1/3 cup oil. Perfect every time. (12/15/2007)

These are fantastic for a quick fix. I used Red Velvet cake with a homemade sour cream icing. Everyone loved them! (04/23/2008)

Easy Cake Mix Cookies

We started making these cookies half hour before the Halloween party and they were done perfectly and just on time! I used a carrot cake mix and replaced the oil with pumpkin sauce. (10/24/2008)
