Cook’s Tips You can make cake mix cookies with any flavor of cake mix! Try vanilla, red velvet, or even confetti!
For best results, only cook one sheet pan at a time. If you bake multiple sheets, rotate your pans and swap racks for even cooking.
To make 18 smaller cookies, scoop 2 tbsp (30 mL) of the mix onto a sheet pan and bake for about 10 minutes, or until the tops crack slightly and don't look wet.
