Easy Holiday Rush Cookies

Kim Biegacki


This recipe is from a friend of mine Sandy. It was one of those recipes on a little notecard the kind you get in the mail or in a magazine.

Anyway, they are so super easy and really tasty too. I consider these to be a "cheating" cookie because of how easy they are and cheap to make too. They also add color and unique flavors to my cookie trays.

Well hope you will try them out.

approx. 4 dozen


10 Min


10 Min




1 box
cake mix (your choice of flavor)
1/4 c
butter, softened
8 oz
cream cheese, softened
powdered sugar

Directions Step-By-Step

Heat oven to 350 degrees.
Mix together the softened butter and cream cheese. Blend well. Now add your choice of cake mix. Mix well and then roll into 1/2 inch balls and place on cookie sheet. Bake 7 to 10 minutes. Make sure you look at them when it's 7 minutes because they should be just lightly browned on bottom. Remove and place on cooling rack and sprinkle with powdered sugar.
Our favorite is lemon, orange supreme and strawberry cake mixes. I have tried other flavors and the only one that didn't taste well was spice cake mix.
I love how super easy these are and everyone really enjoys them. They are super soft and have a hint of flavor to them. ---- I also enjoy how I can add color to my cookie trays with them.
