Default Cake Mix Cookies



Advertise Here

Thought I'd share this recipe. It's a great post SHTF one for me, because we have chickens for eggs, cake mix stores well and goes on sale cheap, and I won't need to use my flour/wheat storage for them (when I'd prefer to use it for bread). Thought it might be a way to give the kids a treat when things get tough.

Cake Mix Cookies

1 box cake mix
1/3 to 1/2 cup oil (I've made this with applesauce instead of oil, too)
2 eggs (never tried powdered eggs, but probably would work)

Blend ingredients. Drop on cookie sheets. Bake 350 8-10 minutes.

You can add any extras you want, too, like chocolate chips or chopped nuts. These don't store well and are best the first day. But in a SHTF scenario, I am sure sweets will be gobbled up in my house within hours.

Wow - those sound great and I'm sure they are soft and chewy. I believe I will be putting this recipe on my list of things for my better half and I to try out this week. Thanks for sharing it.

Those are excellent. I stocked up on cake mix awhile back when it went on sale for $.59 a box and I had coupons. So we figured out quite a few new reicpes. I have made the white cake cookies and added coconut extract and flaked coconut to the batter. Before I popped them in the oven, I put a cherry on each one. They were really good!

We make homemade oroes with these cookies too. I usually use the devils food cake mix and the frosting is a regular cocca frosting with a little extra powered sugar so its thick. My favorite is spice cake cookies with a cream cheese frosting center.

You can also make ice cream sandwiches with these cookies if you freeze the cookie first. Let some ice cream get soft, then use the frozen cookies to make sandwiches. If the cookies are not frozen first, they will fall apart and make a huge mess. Wrap each one in wax paper or freezer paper and use within a day or two. I let the ice cream cookie set out for a little bit before we eat them. We made 4th of July ice cream cookies with the red, white, and blue mix and vanilla frosting. After I assembled each cookie, I dipped the sides in a plate of red/white/blue sprinkles. It was a huge hit with the kids.

I have been making these cookies for years. I also use the smaller muffin mixes and add 1 egg and a quarter cup of oil.

These sound delicious! I'm not very good at baking, but I think this sounds easy enough. Does anyone know how long cake mix will keep? I'd like to stock up, but I'm just wondering how long the shelf life is. Thanks!
