2) Grab a large mixing bowl

3) Pour in the cake mix. I used white cake but I thought about pineapple or red velvet.

4) Place one egg in the cake mix

5) Finally fold in the 8 oz cool whip topping (do not overdo it)

6) Then put in the food coloring of your choice (optional)

7) Use a mixer or you can also just use a spatula or wooden spoon to mix the ingredients until well combined. The mixture will be thick and sticky.

8) Then grab a cookie sheet. I use this cookie baking pan. You can line baking sheets with parchment paper.

9) Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C)

10) Scoop out tablespoon-sized portions of the dough and roll them into balls. If the dough is too sticky, you can lightly coat your hands with powdered sugar to make the process easier.

11) Arrange the cookie dough balls on the prepared baking sheets, leaving some space between each for spreading during baking.

12) Bake in the preheated oven for 10-12 minutes or until the edges are set, and the tops are just beginning to crack. Be careful not to overbake; these cookies are meant to be soft and chewy.

13) Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheets for a few minutes before transferring them to wire racks to cool completely. The cookies will firm up as they cool.

14) Place them on a pretty plate and pretend you slaved over their creation.

Some Tips and Variations:

  1. Choose your favorite cake mix flavor to customize the cookies. Chocolate, vanilla, strawberry, red velvet, lemon cake or even funfetti cake mix can all be delightful choices.
  2. Feel free to get creative by adding your favorite mix-ins. Chocolate chips, chopped nuts, or sprinkles can be folded into the dough for an extra burst of flavor and texture.
  3. Store these cookies in an airtight container at room temperature for up to a week. You can also freeze them for longer storage.

NOTE from  a reader: I make these with the lemon cake mix and roll in powdered sugar before baking. I also do white cake mix with almond extract and roll in granulated sugar. I’ve tried chocolate mix also…ALL are amazing! I find that if I refrigerate the dough for a while after mixing that the cookies come out thicker and fluffier.

Best paired with Hot chocolate with cool whip heart!
