Common ingredients in cake-mix cookies include cooking oil or butter, milk or water, sugar or honey, eggs and the cake mix. Depending on the type of cookie, the recipe may call for chocolate chips, marshmallows or flavoring extract.
Betty Crocker Monster Cookies start with Betty Crocker SuperMoist yellow cake mix and use 1/2 cup packed brown sugar, 3/4 cup softened butter, 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter, 2 tablespoons water and an egg. Once these are mixed together in a large bowl, the recipe calls for stirring in 2 cups quick-cooking oats, then adding candy-coated chocolate candies and semisweet chocolate chips. Using a large cookie scoop to drop these onto an ungreased cookie sheet 2 inches apart and baking them in a pre-heated 350-degree oven for about 15 minutes should make them golden-brown around the edges. At this point, they are ready to remove from the oven and cool for 10 minutes on the cookie sheet. Moving them to a cooling rack to cool for another 20 minutes cools them completely so they are ready to eat.
The Betty Crocker Witch Hat Cookie recipe uses Betty Crocker SuperMoist devil's food cake mix; 1/2 cup vegetable oil; 2 eggs; Betty Crocker Rich & Creamy vanilla frosting; Betty Crocker orange, green and purple neon gel food colors; assorted candy sprinkles; and Hershey's Kisses-brand chocolates.
Betty Crocker Applesauce Spice Cookies with Browned Butter-Cream Cheese Frosting ingredients include Betty Crocker SuperMoist spice cake mix, unsweetened applesauce, an egg and canola oil for the cookies. The frosting is made with unsalted butter, cream cheese, powdered sugar and a dash of salt.
