Cream Cheese Cake Mix Cookies are tender, buttery, and slightly sweet. Rainbow sprinkles add pretty pops of color.
Easy to make with a box of yellow cake mix and a few additional ingredients.
In my adjusted version, the cookie dough isn’t rolled in powdered sugar before baking.
I also chilled the cookie dough before baking because the it is easier to manage (not sticky). Plus, the cookies don’t spread while baking.
Although I love homemade desserts, I will use a boxed cake mix when I need a quick dessert.
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.
Other popular add-ins are chocolate chips, crumbled peppermint, chopped cordial cherries, chopped pecans and chopped walnuts.
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 video tutorial is a great way 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.
Make notes in your recipe. Note any special prep instructions, cooking time, ingredients omitted, favorite substitutions, and creative twists.
The notes will be helpful the next time you make this recipe.
