Holiday Baking: Cake Mix Cookies

This article was written with AI assistance.

The Holiday season is coming up on us fast. This is my favorite time of the year and I especially love all the baking. This easy recipe for Christmas cookies using a box cake mix is a fun way to make cookies for holiday get-togethers or for giving as gifts. 

In this article I will show you two of my favorites. First is the Fruitcake cookies using a yellow cake with fruit cake mix (the dried fruit that comes out during the holidays), and Chocolate Mint Chip cookies made with devil’s food cake and chocolate mint chips.

Ingredients:

 Fruit Cake Cookies:

1 package of yellow cake.

 1/4 cup vegetable oil.

 1 egg 1 tsp. cinnamon.

 1 tsp. vanilla.

2 -4 tsp milk.

1/3 cup fruit cake mix plus 2 tbsp for top of cookies.

Mix all ingredients well, add just enough milk so that the dough is not dry. Roll cookies into balls and put them on a cookie sheet. Smash them down with your palm or use the smooth part of the bottom of a glass. Top cookies with the extra ingredients and bake in a 350* oven until golden brown.

 Chocolate Mint Chip:

 1 devil’s food cake mix.

 1/4 cup vegetable oil.

1tsp vanilla.

2-4 tsp. milk.

3/4 bag or less chocolate mint chips, saving the rest for the top of the cookies.

Mix all ingredients well, add just enough milk so that the dough is not dry. Roll cookies into balls and put them on a cookie sheet.  Smash them down with your palm or use the smooth part of the bottom of a glass. Top cookies with the extra ingredients and bake in a 350* oven until golden brown. 

Here are some ideas for cookies. Use your imagination for unlimited combinations! The directions are the same for every recipe. We love Spice Cake with Peanut Butter Chips or Butterscotch Chips. And don’t forget my delicious Lemon Cake Cookies with Lemon Drizzle.

Pack in Christmas tins for gift giving.
