Cake Batter Cut Out Cookies

These are going to be my new go to cookies when I want to use a cookie cutter. I love making sugar cookies at Christmas, you know for Santa haha. But I like my cookies soft and that seems to be a hard thing to get in sugar cookies but not these, they stay soft!!! One thing I have also decided is why stay with white cake mix? I might have to try another flavor too. Here is the simple recipe I found on Pinterest from  Goodness Gracious.

In her recipe she uses Funfetti cake mix but me I had lots of Christmas colored sprinkles around the house that I needed to use up, so I just got white Cake mix and added my own colors. I think this will be great if you are having a party with specific colors.


1 box cake mix
2 eggs
1 stick softened butter
1 teaspoon Vanilla

What to do
1. Mix everything together (easy right?)
2. refrigerate from 1 hr then FREEZE for 1 hr
3. Flour your surface where you will roll out VERY WELL. You will also be adding flour ontop of your dough as you roll out because I found this is a very sticky dough.
4. Decorate if you wish (you can of course frost after baking just like any sugar cookie)
5. Bake at 350 12-15 min. Cool on cooling rack.

Here are some pictures of my process.

No pictures for step 2  I don't think you need a picture of my bowl in the fridge and freezer :)
 step 3- 5

Enjoy these sweet and SOFT cut out cookies!!!!
