Cake Mix Cookies

Updated on December 2, 2013

Easiest cookie recipe ever!

I've always had trouble baking homemade sugar cookies. They just never keep their shape. That's why this recipe has been a life saver. All you need is a box of your favorite cake mix and a tub of your favorite frosting.

These cookies are easy to make. They taste delicious. And with all the cake mix and frosting varieties available, the flavor combination possibilities are endless.

You can't make cookies without cookie cutters!
