Did you know that you can make cookies from a cake mix? I’m sure I’m not the only person who’s had a craving for cookies and stared at that box of cake mix in the pantry. Boxed cake mixes are so easy to make a cake from, so why not use them to make easy cake mix cookies?
Well, you totally can.
Not only can you make cookies from cake mix, but just as there is dozen of cake mix flavors, there is many ways you can transform a boxed cake mix into cookies. One of my favorite cakes — and it doesn’t matter if it’s a boxed cake mix or homemade — is easily carrot cake. Turning carrot cake mix into cookies is a great way of getting your carrot cake fix, into a favorite hand-held treat.
To make your own Carrot Cake Mix Cookies, you’ll start by combining a box of Carrot Cake mix, flour, eggs, vegetable oil and sour cream.
After the dough is formed, you’ll drop spoonfuls of dough onto a parchment lined baking sheet. Using the bottom of a glass dipped in sugar, press to flatten the cookies.
After baking and cooling on a wire rack, the tops of your Carrot Cake Mix Cookies are frosted with the homemade Cream Cheese Frosting.
For an extra touch, garnish your cookies with some chopped walnuts. Aren’t they lovely? They are yummy and SO EASY to make.
