Question, I found a recipe that uses boxed white cake mix for sugar cookies, same recipe that's used on this thread, but I wonder if there is a tried & true way to make them so that they can be used to make cut outs? Has anyone tried to do that with cake mix cookies? I've yet to find a sugar cookie recipe that anyone likes and we have to make a batch of sugar cookies to decorate for Santa

I usually make a Christmas cookie recipe which is a bit like German leibkucken (sp?) - sort of gingery and spicy, but much softer than gingerbread. Its a really easy recipe and the kids can play about with it without the dough going all hard

I'll see if I can find it and post on a separate thread.

You can use the yellow cake mix for cut out sugar cookies. Just refrigerate the dough for about an hour after you make it, so it is stiffer. Put plenty of flour on your board, and on the dough, so it won't be so sticky. Roll out with a rolling pin and cut with cookie cutters.

Immediately after you take them out of the oven, drop the cookie sheets on the counter or on top of the stove a couple of times. This helps deflate & flatten them. If you want really hard, crispy sugar cookies, allow them to sit out overnite before decorating.

Hi Tink! I think you figured out that I meant to make up the basic cookie dough following the ingredients in the first post, then putting them in the muffin cups and flattening them along the edge, so they become cups instead of just flat cookies.

I'll change the directions, as you won't be the only one rushed to get stuff made for the holidays, and start looking at the directions a bit cross-eyed. There are some days I look at a recipe and think, "What's an egg?

Ok, so one more question. Is it better to use oil, crisco, butter or butter flavored crisco. I cannot for the life of me remember what I used last year when I made the red velvet w/white chipe and the chocolate w/mint chips. I will write it down this year.

I sorta lean toward either oil or regular crisco with a white cake mix, but maybe not? Help me

You can actually use any of them. Cake mixes are designed to be very forgiving and still work out. For a white cake mix, use the butter or butter flavored Crisco for that extra boost of butter flavor.

There is a current 8 page thread over on the DIS Community Board on how to doctor cake mixes for yummier tasting cakes:

Boxed Cakes w/ a Little Extra!

I'll also add a link to it on the first post here, to make it easier to find later.

A couple other ways to do cookie cups:

Spray the outside of a muffin pan with cooking spray, or wipe with a little vegetable oil or butter, than form the cookie dough around it and bake. It will for a slightly larger cookie cup than one done on the inside of the pan.

These are for cookie cups to be filled after they are baked. Example: fill them with ice cream & toppings for a sundae.






Or use the space in between the muffin cups to make your cookie cups:
