Soft, chewy cookies out of a Cake Mix? Yes you absolutely can!
I’ve mentioned before how I wished Pillsbury brought in their pre-mix cookie doughs and ready to bake croissants into South Africa before. While we may not be able to produce instant, oven fresh chocolate chip cookies (without making them from scratch), we can have a little fun with the cake mixes avaliable!
I’d seen pictures of these soft, cakey cookies on the internet and have been dying to give them a try. They make the perfect lunch box treat!
Heres how we made ours:
1 x Box of Funfetti Cake Mix
1/3 Cup Oil
Vanilla Supreme Frosting Mix
Heat oven to 180 Degree Celsius
In large bowl, stir cake mix, oil and eggs with spoon until well mixed. Shape tablespoonfuls dough into 1-inch balls.
Bake for 6 to 8 minutes or until edges are light golden brown. Cool 1 minute; remove from cookie sheets to cooling rack.
Stop your kids from stealing them all!
OPTIONAL: Use Vanilla Supreme Frosting and spread frosting over warm cookies for a glaze effect. Immediately sprinkle each with candy sprinkles from frosting. I chose not to do this as I feel the cookies are sweet enough, but this would be great for an extra treat. Store in airtight container.
You are literally using a tiny amount of liquid to wet the dough.
Friday Lunchbox treats have never been easier, this made the perfect amount of cookies in such a quick amount of time! Theres no reason to never have a jar filled with rainbow sprinkled goodness now! I am sure I can adapt this recipe with other cake mixes, I’ll post the recipe up as soon as I try! Have fun baking and experimenting, but more importantly, have fun doing it with your kids!
