Recipe Tips

  • Line Baking Sheet – For easy cleanup, line the baking sheet with parchment paper. This also helps when removing the cookies from the pan.
  • Scooping Dough – For best results, we recommend using a cookie scoop to form the dough. This helps to ensure the cookies are about the same size.

  • Preheat oven to 350F. Spray cookie sheet with non-stick cooking spray (this is really important for these cookies or they will stick to the pan).
  • Mix together the cake mix, cool whip and egg with a hand held mixer. This will be very "foamy" at first. Just keep mixing until everything is well combined and a batter is formed.
  • Using a small cookie scoop, scoop one ball at a time and roll in powdered sugar.
  • Place cookies, on greased cookie sheet about 2 inches apart.
  • Bake at 350F for 8-10 minutes. If these start to brown just a tiny bit around the edges, they are done. Do not over-bake them.
  • Let the cookies cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes and then transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely. Enjoy!
