Cake Mix Cookies

The following 3 recipes all use a cake mix. They are super easy to make and the dough is easy to work with so if you are in a hurry and need a quick cookie to bake up with ingredients you can keep on hand these are for you! The first recipe is for Snicker Doodles. These are really good but especially awesome served warm from the oven. This is what I do when I am entertaining. I make the dough and form it into balls. I put them in the fridge. When my guests sit down for dinner, I preheat the oven and quickly roll as many balls as needed in cinnamon sugar and bake them. I serve them fresh and warm!

Snicker Doodles

1 box Yellow cake mix
1/3 cup oil
2 eggs
2 tsp vanilla

1/4 cup sugar
2 tsp cinnamon

Mix together the cake mix, oil, eggs and vanilla. Roll into 1 inch balls. The balls can be refrigerated at this point if desired. Stir together the sugar and cinnamon. Right before baking roll the balls in the cinnamon sugar. Place on cookie sheets and bake at 375 for 10 minutes.

Lemon Snowflakes

1 box Lemon cake mix
1 egg
2 1/4 cups thawed cool whip
powdered sugar for rolling

Preheat oven to 350. Mix the first 3 ingredients. The batter will be very soft and sticky. Drop teaspoons of dough into a bowl of powdered sugar. Shake around until completely covered. Remove from sugar and place on a parchment lined cookie sheet. Bake 8-10 minutes.

Chocolate Fudge Cookies

1 box Devil's food cake mix
2 eggs
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350. Combine all ingredients. Roll into walnut sized balls. Place on parchment lined cookie sheets. Bake 8-10 minutes. Cool on baking sheet 5 minutes then remove to a cooling rack to cool completely.
