Cake Mix Cookies

Cake Mix Cookies

I love to have fresh-baked goods on hand, but with our crazy schedule, who has time to bake? I love it when I can find a quick, easy recipe that allows me to make delicious treats for my family, while keeping it simple for me. Cake Mix Cookies are just about the simplest cookie in my repertoire, but they are always a big hit. They are so delicious, in fact, that nobody would ever know they are made with only four ingredients (cake mix, butter, eggs, and extract). I call that a win/win.

You can make Cake Mix Cookies with just about any flavor of cake mix you like. We were craving a lemony dessert, so we went with a lemon cake mix and a little lemon extract. A week or so ago, I received in the mail a shipment of the newly reformulated I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter!®. It is made from real, simple ingredients you can recognize like a delicious blend of plant-based oils, purified water and a pinch of salt. Since the packaging states, “The new I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter!® offers a fresh butter taste to add flavor to any meal, and can be used for spreading, topping, sautéing, cooking or baking,” I used it in my Cake Mix Cookies in place of the butter. They turned out perfectly delicious! They were just the right amount of chewy and sweet. I was very pleased with the I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter!®, and I will definitely use it again.

To make Cake Mix Cookies, you’ll need:

1 boxed cake mix (Whatever flavor you want. We used lemon.)
2 eggs
8 oz I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter!®, softened to room temperature
1 teaspoon extract (Whatever flavor goes with your cake mix. We used lemon. Vanilla and almond are also good choices.)

With a mixer or by hand, cream together the I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter!® and the eggs. Add the extract. While mixing, slowly add the cake mix until it is well blended.

At this point, I stick mine back in the fridge for about 30 minutes to let the batter firm up a little. You can skip this step, but yours will cook about a minute or so faster.

Drop by spoonfuls onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake on 350 degrees for 8-9 minutes. As all oven temperatures vary, keep an eye on them so that they don’t overcook.

Remove to a cooling rack to cool.

Cake Mix Cookies aren’t as sweet as say, a chocolate chip cookie or a snicker doodle. However, they are perfectly light and airy.
