I used to work in various nursing homes. The desserts were cookies sometimes. This recipes was given to me by one of my co-workers to make in a pinch. I have since used it regularly at home and at work. It makes a wonderfully tasty and tender cookie, or you can make it crispy. My personal favorite is strawberry cake with chocolate chips.

How to Make Box Cake Cookies


  • 1Preheat oven to 350.
  • 2Mix cake mix, oil, and eggs together. If mixture is too stiff add one extra egg. (no more than 3 all together) (oh, and be careful how much oil, that makes it spread too thin and makes a very crispy cookie.)
  • 3Place by the Tablespoonful on ungreased cookie sheet about 2 inches apart. They will spread. (I used a very small ice scoop-1 oz to keep portions even) Add your chips,candies, or sprinkles at this point. Depending on your oven, bake for 10 t0 14 mins. Let the edges get golden brown for crispy texture.
  • 4Cool on rack. Serve and watch them disappear very very quickly.
