25 Days of Christmas: DAY 13: Vanilla Cake Cookies

cake cake cake… cookies

These cookies do not get any easier! If you love cake batter, you will love this, the cookies taste like vanilla cake batter…. Because they are made with cake batter!

This recipe takes a simple box cake mix and makes them into cookies. No one will ever know how easy and simple these are… it will be our little secret. Also, you can do this with any cake mix you find, which means… endless possibilities!


Preheat your oven to 350 degrees

Line a cookie tray with parchment paper


–          1 box of yellow or vanilla cake mix

–          2 egg yolks

–          1 stick of butter (softened)

–          1 teaspoon of vanilla

With a stand mixer or a hand mixer, mix together the butter, egg yolks, and vanilla. Slowly add the cake mix (do not do this all at once! Slowly but surely it will all mix in). The batter is really stiff, almost wet sand like, but that’s ok!

Ball the batter together and make about two tablespoon size balls of batter, place on the cookie sheet about an inch apart. Bake for 10 minutes, take out when still soft.

I decorated mine with melted butterscotch!

–          1 cup of butterscotch chips

Melt the butterscotch chips on the microwave and dip the cooled cookies into it!
