Cake Mix Christmas Cookies

Pin It now! Let me just start off by saying that these were the easiest cookies that I have ever made. Seriously. And they were so yummy, too!

You just need 3 simple ingredients:

  • Cake Mix (I used yellow cake mix, but I'd imagine that any flavor would be great. I plan on trying chocolate next!)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil

Mix together the ingredients

Roll the "dough" into small balls (about 1 inch or so)

Bake for 10-12 minutes @ 350

Makes about 2 dozen



Before I put them in the oven I rolled a few of the balls in red and green sugar. I also rolled one in sprinkles, and another in confetti, just to see how they would turn out and honestly there isn't a single cookie that I didn't like.

I also used Wilton's Cookie Icing and Holiday Mix Sprinkles to decorate some of the cookies.


I love this time of year! I have a lot more baking and some Christmas crafts that I want to do and I'll be posting everything in my blog. So check back often because there will be new stuff up at least a few times a week. :-)

I've seen this recipe before and have been meaning to try it! My next batch of cookies I'll be practicing a new recipe that I want to use for the cookie exchange, but I'm going to try these soon! Thanks for the reminder. :)

I've been wanting to try cake mix cookies and maybe the holiday season is the perfect to try making them.

Question for you - do you think that the dough could be cut using cookie cutters or is it not that type of dough?
