Cool Whip Cookies

I saw a link to these cookies the other day on Facebook and thought, “Hey! I have all those things! I should try it out!” So I did. These are the easiest cookies in the world to make with only 3 ingredients. THREE: Cool Whip, cake mix, and eggs. Ok I lied. There’s 4 if you coat them in powdered sugar. Details details.

Now, I used yellow cake mix because it was all I had on hand. This wouldn’t be my first choice if I were to go choose a box of cake mix at the store. I think red velvet or chocolate or lemon would be awesome. Don’t get me wrong though… good ol’ yellow cake mix turned out fabulous as well.

I slightly underbaked my cookies because I hate it when they get dried out. This resulted in a flatter but chewier cookie. I think if you let them go another minute or two more they’d be more fluffy. Anyway, I was pleasantly surprised by this last-minute cookies-on-a-whim recipe I found. I’m excited to try out other flavors!

p.s. You have to pronounce “Cool Whip” like this:

Cool Whip Cookies

  • 1 (18 1/4 ounce) box cake mix (any flavor)
  • 1 (8 ounce) container Cool Whip (thawed)
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar (for rolling)

Combine cake mix, Cool Whip, and egg in a large bowl and beat until well combined (dough will resemble thick marshmallow and may be refrigerated to make it easier to work with).Using a cookie scoop (about 1 rounded tablespoon), drop cookie dough into bowl of powered sugar and roll to coat. Place evenly spaced on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake at 350°F for 10-12 minutes. Allow to cool for a few minutes before removing to cooling rack. Makes about 2 dozen cookies.
