Cake Mix Cookies Tips

  • You do not need to add the ingredients listed on the side of the cake box. Only the ingredients listed in the recipe below are needed.
  • Make sure to use a 15.25 oz. box of cake and mix and not a larger one like 18 ounces.

Storage Instructions

Cookies should be stored in an air tight container for 2-3 days. Cookies will start to harden after a couple days so it is best to serve and eat them right away.
