Do My Cookies Have to Be Chocolate?

  • Nope! Like the frosting, you can choose any flavor of dry cake mix. Be sure to stick with a standard size box of cake mix for the below ingredients to work . It should be approx 18 oz in size.

Recipe Notes:

  • Once cookies are baked and still warm, don’t forget to flatten them with the bottom of a cup/glass. Be careful and do this gently.
  • If your batter is thick..this is ok! It’s suppose to be. 😉
  • Don’t forget to let your butter softened up before using. This helps gives the cookies their soft texture.
