These cookies taste delicious! You can use any flavor cake mix and any mix-ins. Also, I have tried using Dunkin Hines cake mix and they just don't turn out right. Pillsbury is the better choice for soft delicious cookies!! Hope this helps

Could you substitute equal amounts butter instead of the oil?

Good morning! Yes, you can substitute the same amount of melted butter for oil in this recipe. Hope this was helpful. :)

I love to make cake mix cookies and cookie bars. They are so easy to make and easy on the ingredients. My family loves them because I keep finding new recipes and trying different variations of the cookies. For instance, I had made MM cookies with yellow cake mix before, but not with a white cake mix. These are delicious!

Do you separate the eggs and use only the whites or use the whole egg?

Hi there! In this recipe, use the whole egg. Enjoy!

Can I substitute applesauce for the oil?

Hi there! While the Mr. Food Test Kitchen has not made this recipe using applesauce instead of oil, we believe that it is an acceptable substitution. If you make this recipe and love it, let us know. We would love to hear back. Enjoy!

I'm all for easy cookies this year without resorting to buying expensive ones. These look good and I might tint them to look more festive.

I made these cookies yesterday, they were great everyone loved them. THE PROBLEM the batter was so thick my mixer started smoking. It was a wedding gift and my husband recently passed away, I am heart broken. DONT USE AN ELECTRIC MIXER WITH THIS RECIPE.

Where does one find that size cake mix?

Hi there! You can find 18.5-oz boxes of cake mix at most grocery stores, including Wal-Mart. However, if you cannot find this particular size, feel free to use any size box. Any size box should work without needing any major adjustments. Enjoy!

Does this recipe make a good plain sugar cookie....no m&ms? It looks like it would.

This recipe makes the BEST sugar cookies. I top with a dob of canned icing, any brand and any flavor. They are delicious. Let the icing melt over the cookie, cool and firm.

my grocery store stocks the mini m&m's by the baking goods, down by the nuts and other toppings

I can't find M&M mini's anywhere, not even in the flip top tubes they came in last time I seen them. Does anyone know where I can find them?


think outside the box and use any flavor you want.

There is a similar recipe on this site for "double chocolate cookies" that uses a chocolate mix. Some of the comments under that were from folks who had made variations using other flavors of cake mix.

Would regular size M&M's work? They often have holiday colored ones to use.

you'd have bigger chocolate pieces and not as many...same concept...


they wer great
