My kids and I made the snickerdoodle ones mentioned on the first page, and my husband went crazy for them. He is not one to ooh and ahh over sweets, but these made his eyes roll back in his head LOL.

Thanks so much for all the great recipes. They all sound so easy and delicious! I know I'll be trying a few of them this holiday season.

Thank you for this thread and for bumping it. I bought 3 boxes of cake mix on sale and wondered about using them for cookies. Now I'll try these.

My oven has been acting up. We finally decided to just buy a new one. So hopefully I'll have my new oven next weekend. This thread has been on my to-do list for the holidays. Can't wait to try them out.

I've got to try these!

I found a great recipe for chocolate chip cookies on Recipezaar - you add chocolate pudding mix and they come out chewy and chocolately - yummy! Don't make them if you're doing Weightwatchers though as they're 5 points EACH - and you can't eat just one

I just saw a show where someone made Fruitcake Cookies using Spice Cake Mix and assorted chopped dried fruit & nuts - like in those self serve bins in the trail mix section at health food stores. Since these fruits are naturally dried & sweetened (and hand selected by you) vs. the petrified candied fruits in most fruitcakes, these cookies would actually be edible!

I had to make alot of cookies for my grandson's christening a few weeks back. Each box of mix makes over 4 dozen 1 teaspoon cookies. I measured out each teaspoon then rolled them into a ball and pressed them out slightly. They come out very uniformly shaped. If you press them out more they could be stored in a Pringle container and even shipped safely.
I made the cake mix cookies and frosted them and they were the hit of the party. I had so many people ask me for the recipes for the wonderful cookies I made. I was almost embarrassed to tell them that it was a cake mix and not a "wonderful recipe". But I think there will be alot of cake mix cookies on talbes this Christmas.
I made
chocolate cake mix with chocolate frosting.
spice cake mix with cream cheese frosting.
lemon cake mix with lemon frosting.
Strawberry cake mix with vanilla frosting.
I made the cookies on Friday night and frosted them right away. I left them out to air harden on Sat and by Sunday the frosting had a slight coating so they could be stacked on a plate, but the frosting was creamy inside.
The cookies were very soft and moist, not hard or chewy. They were absolutly delicious if I do say so myself.
I bought a large full sheet cake with strawberry filling and whipped cream frosting.
I came home with almost 3/4 of the cake but not one cookie. Peggie

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

In a large bowl, combine cake mix, egg and cool whip, mixing to combine. Batter will be very stiff.

Drop by teaspoonful into confectioners' sugar. Roll into 1-inch balls, using sugar to keep dough from sticking to hands. Place balls 2 inches apart onto greased baking sheets. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until light brown on bottom.

Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. Store in an airtight container.

Makes approximately 72 cookies.

I made this cookies a christmas they make a soft cookie that's great with coffee.

Adding a few more:

Use the butter flavor yellow cake mix or the chocolate cake mix for these.

Posted by ntink over on the Quick & Easy Christmas Treats thread.

"Peanut butter surprise cookies: with a mini pb cup inside.

I flattened a piece of dough then put a mini pb cup in the middle, covered it with the dough and rolled it into a ball. They flatten out during baking. I forgot to add that as soon as the cookies came out of the oven, we sprinkled them with chocolate shaving but you could sprinkle with powdered sugar and/or drizzle on melted chocolate."


Other Hidden Surprise Cookies:

Caramel Rollo cups
Andee's Mints
Chocolate mint wafers
White chocolate truffles

--------------------------------------------

Star Jelly Sandwich cookies:



Roll out yellow cake mix dough rather thin.
With Star cookie cutter, cut out 2 star shapes. Use a smaller star cutter or circle cutter (or bottle cap,) cut a hole in the center of one of the stars. Place a teaspoon of jam or strawberry preserves onto each cookie and spread out towards the points of the stars. Place the cutout star on top.

Bake 7 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven, until golden around the edges.
Dust with powdered sugar or dribbles of icing.

Variation: Use raspberry or apricot preserves or orange marmalade as filling.

There's probably lots of sandwich cookie variations we can come up with.
Maybe a chocolate cookie with peanut butter chips & jelly center...
Spice cake cookies with applesauce centers & cream cheese icing on top.

OR: You can bake & assemble them after baking.
If no star cookie cutter, just do round sandwich cookies.

---------------------------------------------------------------

Thumbprint Cookies:



Flatten a ball of dough, indent the center with your thumb & place preserves in the indent.

Optional: Make a simple glaze to drizzle on top.
(Or drizzle on melted (white) chocolate.)

Glaze Ingredients:
1 cup powdered sugar
2 to 3 teaspoons water
1 1/2 teaspoons almond extract (or vanilla or orange or mint extract)

Stir together all glaze ingredients in small bowl with wire whisk until smooth. Drizzle over cookies.
