Confetti Cookies

A few years ago a friend of mine visited and brought a sweet treat – cookies. Soon after giving them to me she explained she made them from a box of cake mix. I didn’t even know that was possible – but it seemed like a very simple, enjoyable way to make cookies if you only have an hour or so to spare.

This morning I thought I’d give it a shot since I had the desire to bake cookies but also have a productive day off getting some errands done. I was pleased with the results and look forward to purchasing some cake mixes on sale in the future for a rainy (lazy) cookie making day.

Here are the three things you need : cake mix, 2 eggs & 1/3 cup oil. Yep – THAT SIMPLE!!

Here are directions:

Mix all ingredients until moist.


Form into 1 inch balls. I used our coffee scoop’s 1 tbspoon side to do so.

(compliments to Crate & Barrel for this tool!)

Next you will want to use the bottom of a floured drinking glass to gently flatten cookies, about 1/4 inch in thickness.

Place on a cookie sheet about 2 inches apart. Bake for 6-8 minutes (until golden brown corners) in a 375 degree oven.

Cool on pan one minute, transfer to cookie racks.

and of course….ENJOY!
