What are cake mix cookies?

Cake mix cookies are cookies that we will make from a boxed cake mix. It’s a great way to use a simple, easy to prepare boxed mix and turn it into something more fun and easy to eat.

Let’s face it, it’s not always a good time for cake. You can enjoy cookies pretty much anytime which means that cake mix cookies are even more delicious because they’re easy to make and even easier to eat!

How do I keep my cookies soft?

For the most part under baking cookies will make them soft and chewy but you don’t need to do that in this case. Cake mix cookies are perfect because they stay soft and chewy all on their own!

If you want to make sure that your cookies come out perfect just follow the recipe and be sure to let them cool for a few minutes on the trays before you move them to a cooling rack. The time spent cooling on the trays lets them finish baking slowly!

Kitchen essentials for tasty recipes to share:

When you head into the kitchen to make some of these great recipes you’ll want to have the best tools on hand.

I like half sheet baking pans that are quality (hello no noisy pops or sloshed cookie dough from twisting), I line my cookie sheets with silicone baking mats. These are great for all kinds of baking and not just cookies! My husband loves them for making biscuits, pizzas, and more!

Of course mixing bowls, a mixerspatula, and some whisks should be on your list if you don’t have ones that you love. I also like to have a set of cooling racks so that my recipes can properly cool before they’re scarfed down by my family!
