Helpful Tips for Making Easy Cake Mix Cookies

  • A mixer is not needed for this recipe. It is best to stir with a spatula or wooden spoon until fully combined.
  • Refrigerate the dough for about 15 minutes before spooning it onto a baking sheet. This reduces stickiness.
  • Use a cookie dough scoop to spoon the dough onto the baking sheet. It helps make the cookies the right size and shape and is easier to work with than a spoon.
