Cream Cheese Cake Mix Cookies are tender, buttery, and slightly sweet. Rainbow sprinkles add pretty colors. Easy to make with a box of yellow cake mix and few additional ingredients.
In my adjusted version, cookie dough isn’t rolled in powdered sugar before baking.
I also chilled cookie dough before baking because it doesn’t spread while baking and is easier to manage (less sticky). Cookies turned out great!
Although I love homemade desserts, I will use boxed cake mixes when time is tight and I need a delicious dessert. Good to have options!
I already know some will complain about using a boxed cake mix because they prefer homemade from scratch. We all have our likes and dislikes. However, I will soon share recipes for homemade cookies! I also love ’em. 🙂
Homemade from scratch butterscotch cookies are are my favorite. Chocolate chip cookies are super popular. However, butterscotch cookies are the best. I will share a fab recipe soon.
Chocolate and yellow butter flavored cake mixes also make great cookies.
Popular add-ins are chocolate chips, crumbled peppermint, chopped cordial cherries, chopped pecans and chopped walnuts.
What’s your favorite cookie? Please leave a comment.
My precious aunt tasted the warm Cream Cheese Cake Mix cookies after they came out of the oven.
She liked the soft texture and mild sweetness. We love ’em!
Sprinkles add splashes of pretty color.
To make Christmas cookies, add green and red sprinkles.
Store cookies in an airtight container. Keep on countertop or in fridge.
How To Read & Follow A Recipe: Tips for Beginners
Reading a recipe is an important life skill that requires properly reading a recipe’s ingredients, and instructions. Plus, knowing how to prep ingredients and what equipment to use.
Start with clean hands and organized kitchen. Wash hands thoroughly. Make sure kitchen and countertops are clean before making a recipe.
Create a relaxing environment. Play favorite music while in the kitchen. I love listening to classical or gospel music.
Read the entire recipe so you understand it and to make sure you have each ingredient.
If you see ingredient that you and your family don’t use for whatever reason, use a substitute.Watch Recipe Videos. If you’re a visual learner (like me), watching a recipe video is great for when you want to see how a recipe is made.
Mise en place is a super time saver. This French cooking term translates as “putting in place.” It means prepping/measuring ingredients and chopping food before you start cooking. Helps you make sure you have each ingredient and avoid accurately following instructions.
Make notes in your recipe. Note any special prep instructions and highlight cooking times. Make note of ingredients omitted, favorite substitutions and creative twists. The notes will be very helpful the next time you make this recipe.
