Hey there!
I made cake mix cookies last week and they were so delicious! I actually ended up eating them all before they got to my friend's for his birthday...oops!
Well today, I went to find the cake mix again so I could re-make the cookies, but all they had left was cupcake mix. (apparently everyone discovered cake mix cookies last week) Will it work with the same recipe?

Both mixes are Betty Crocker and the recipe I used was basically:
1 Box Cake Mix
2 Eggs
1/2 cup Oil
2 Tablespoons Water

Mix well, Bake at 350 for 15 minutes.
Thanks for any help! Smiley

I saw the 'cupcake' mix today and was confused by it. Shouldn't a regular 'cake' mix make cupcakes? I don't know, I would think your cookies would turn out the same with the cupcake mix because it cannot be that different than their other cake mixes.
Hope this helps.
Let me know how they turn out!

Yeah, I was confused by it too!

The only thing is that the cake mix called for more eggs (i think 3 or 4?) than the cupcake mix (just 1) so I'm not sure about the cookie recipe. Should I try using 1 egg instead of 2?

I am not a professional baker by any means but I would think sticking with the 2 eggs that your cookie recipe calls for would be just fine. Most cookie recipes always have 2 eggs in them.

Thanks chorto! I'll just have to try it and let you all know! Smiley

missriss, it is! They're initially really sweet, but if you let them sit a day or two, they become less so. Of course if you like really sweet, go to town on those cookies!

Cake mix cookies are my mom's go-to cookies when she needs to make something quick.  I've seen her use all types and flavors of cake mixes . . . along with different add-ins (nuts, chocolate chips, coconut, etc) . . . and all come out well.  It's a great time-saver!

They came out ok! The consistency of the dough is runnier, not like cookie dough at all, but it worked. They were a lot less sweeter than the cake mix cookies, but they go well with icing. If you're going to make bigger cookies, you need to either bake them longer or bake for 15 minutes, turn them over, and bake for about 5 more minutes, because it's just like a very flat cake.
