Let’s learn how to make cookies from a cake mix!
Ingredients for cake mix cookie recipe:

How to make cookies out of cake mix:
Mix the cake mix, eggs and oil together in a large bowl. (Batter will be thick but this is normal).
Use a cookie scoop to scoop out the cookies and place on cookie sheets leaving about 2 inches between each cookie.
Bake for 8 to 10 minutes until cookies brown SLIGHTLY on the edges.
Sprinkle with the powdered sugar.

Tips for the best cake mix cookies:
If you are still scooping cookies with two spoons, you really need to get yourself some stainless steel scoops!
I have had mine for several years and I use them for all types of baking. I bought the 3 pack and used the smallest of the 3 scoops for these funfetti cake mix cookies (and almost all my cookies) and they were just the right size for adults and kids.
The other sizes are perfect for other recipes or meatballs and such. Trust me, they will get lots of use and are well worth the small investment.
We have even used an ice cream scoop but I do prefer the smaller cookie scoops.
It is also a good idea to use a cooling rack. Place the cookies on racks to cool completely.
We also line baking sheets with parchment paper. This makes cleaning large baking sheets easier as well.
You will save lots of time and this is one of our favorite easy recipes. It is one of the easiest dessert recipes ever.
