Betty Crocker Cake Box Sugar Cookies

Betty Crocker Cake Mix Sugar Cookies

I have been seeing cookies periodically here in blog land that have been made from different types of pre-made cake mixes. I thought it might be fun to try so I googled Betty Crocker cake mix cookies and found the following recipe.

"Mix-Easy Rolled Sugar Cookies'
1 box Betty Crocker Super Moist white cake mix (I used yellow)
1/2 cup shortening
1/3 cup butter softened
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 egg

Heat oven to 375 (350 for dark or nonstick cookie sheets) In a large bowl, beat cake mix, shortening, butter, vanilla, and egg with an electric mixer on low speed 30 seconds, then high speed 1 minute.
Divide dough in four equal parts. Roll each part 1/8 inch thick on a lightly floured board. I put my dough in the refrigerator for two hours prior to rolling. After rolling the dough cut into desired shapes.
Bake 5 to 7 minutes, or until lightly brown. Cool one minute and remove from pan.
After the cookies are completely cooled they can be decorated any way you chose. I used the pre-made frosting's and gels you can get at your local super market. I also added candy to make the noses.
This would be a fun project to do with children.

Are you cooking up anything special this week for your little goblins? I would love to hear from you.
I hope you have a spooktacular and fun filled week ♥
Well, I'm off to deliver some unexpected treats to my favorite goblins.
With warmest regards, Carol

Hi Carol,
Your cookies look great! I have never made the cookies from a cake mix. I made pumpkin bars this last week and they are delicious.

Nice and easy that's what I like about this recipe. Thanks! I probably will try to do some baking for my own little ones. I wouldn't dare for the masses. :D

I've never used a cake mix to make cookies before but one of my friends does and she loves them!
This recipe looks nice and simple. I think that I'll give them a try as well!

Oh precious Carol, you and sweet Charli have given me so much joy, when I have been down, in need of a smile, or a chuckle. THANK YOU DEAR ONE, for always being there.

Now when is Miss C. going to reveal her attire for the Boo Hour? teeeeeheeeee!

Lovingly, Anita
