Recipe Ingredients

To print: see recipe card below.

Ingredients to make Cool Whip cake mix cookies.
  • 1 (15.25 ounce) box of lemon cake mix – Any brand you like best will work!
  • 2 cups Cool Whip, thawed
  • 1 egg – Let it come to room temperature for easy mixing.
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar

Variations

  • Switch up the cake mix flavor to make a different flavor of cookies. Try strawberry, chocolate, red velvet, or yellow cake mix cookies.
  • Mix chocolate chips, sprinkles, or chopped nuts into the batter.
  • Create a cookie sandwich and add more Cool Whip or frosting, like cream cheese frosting, in the middle of two cookies. 

Directions for How to Make Cake Mix Brownies

  1. Prepare: Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Then, line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
  2. Combine the ingredients: Add the cake mix, Cool Whip, and egg to a medium bowl. Stir just until no streaks remain.
  3. Portion: Use a tablespoon-sized cooking scoop to portion the batter, and scoop it into a bowl of powdered sugar. Roll one cookie at a time, coating it with the sugar. Then, transfer it to the prepared baking sheet.
  4. Repeat: Continue the process, using all the dough, and rolling the cookies in sugar. Space them about 1 1/2 inches apart on the baking sheet.
  5. Bake: Transfer the cookies to the oven. Bake for eight minutes or until they no longer look wet around the edges and are lightly golden brown.
  6. Cool: Allow the cookies to cool on the pan slightly. Then, transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely, and enjoy!

Serving Suggestions

These Cool Whip Cake Mix Cookies are great on their own and even better with a little topping. Here are some ways to take the cookies up a level.

  • Sandwich a scoop of ice cream between two cookies to create an ice cream sandwich.
  • Top the cookies with my Fluffy Buttercream Frosting for a sweet bite.
  • Make a simple powdered sugar glaze to drizzle on top of the cookies.

How to Store + Freeze

  • Store the Cool Whip Cake Mix Cookies in an airtight container at room temperature for three to four days.
  • You can also freeze the cookies in an airtight container or freezer-safe bag for up to two to three months.
  • Thaw in the fridge or at room temperature when you’re ready to eat.

Quick Tip

Freeze the cookie dough if you don’t want to bake all of the cookies at once. Skip rolling the cookie dough balls in powdered sugar and instead stick them right in the freezer. When you are ready to bake them, let the dough thaw and roll them in powdered sugar before placing them in the oven to bake.
