Recipe of the Month – Cake Mix Cookies
The strawberry version of these cookies reminds me of my Grandmother. She made these cookies whenever I visited her in Florida, and I loved them. They are super simple to make. Plus since they are made with cake mix, there are so many different versions of this cookie. I’ve listed some suggestions after the recipe though my favorite is still just plain strawberry.
1 cake mix (dry ingredients only)
½ cup vegetable oil
½ cup of mix-ins (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a bowl, mix cake mix, eggs and oil until combined. Stir in optional mix-ins. Roll dough into balls and place on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake until just set in the middle, about 7 to 10 minutes. Cool on baking sheet for 2 minutes before moving to cooling rack.
Variations by using different flavored cake mixes – these are just some suggestions but really you are only limited by your imagination!
Strawberry (possible mix-in: coconut)
Butter Pecan (possible mix-in: butterscotch chips)
Cherry Chip (possible mix-in: chocolate chips)
Chocolate (possible mix-ins: Andes mints or peanut butter cups or you can roll the cookies in powder sugar before baking)
