Ingredients

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F (325°F for dark or nonstick cookie sheets). In large bowl, stir dry cake mix, oil, vanilla and eggs with spoon until dough forms. Cover and refrigerate 1 hour.
  • 2
    Shape dough into 1 1/4-inch balls; roll in sugar. Place on ungreased cookie sheets, about 2 inches apart. Discard any remaining sugar.
  • 3
    Bake 9 to 11 minutes or until edges are set. Cool 1 minute; remove from cookie sheets to cooling racks. Cool completely, about 30 minutes. Store covered at room temperature.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    A cake mix is just the right blend of flour, leavening, and flavorings—a tried and true shortcut to baking up everyday treats. Stirring a chocolate cake mix with eggs and oil yields a soft dough. Chilling it before rolling it into balls—protecting the dough from the heat of your hands—ensures that the cookies will be meltingly tender when they leave the oven.
  • tip 2
    Use a cookie scoop to make portioning cookie dough even faster and more consistent. It also ensures cookies will bake the same length of time.
  • tip 3
    Cookies turn out best when baked one cookie sheet at a time, on middle oven rack. Allow cookie sheet to cool completely between bakes. If cookie sheet is too warm, cookies may spread.

  • There’s no need to make things any more complicated than they need to be. Of course that’s true for important life stuff like relationships, bridesmaid dresses and driving directions, but it’s also true for home baking. Making cake mix cookies is a genius hack that lets you cut into the baking fast lane and emerge from the kitchen with a fresh face, a clean apron and a reputation as the best cookie baker in any given tri-state area. Once you’ve started using cake mix as your go-to cookie “starter,” you’ll never make cookies any other way—and no one will ever know your sweet kitchen secret.
