Cake mix Cookies. You are my hero. You saved me so much time in the kitchen this morning. I like your taste. I like your style. I like your simplicity. I like your sprinkles. I like your shape.
Yes… Heart Cake Cookies you are my new best friend.
I have a cookie recipe for you. However… this is no ordinary cookie recipe. Its a cake cookie. Now… I know you have heard of cake-like cookies, however these are cut-out cake-like cookies. When I was making these, I wasn’t sure how it was going to work out, as I have never made cake cut-out cookies before…. but they were easier than I thought and they turned out really good! Usually when I make cake cookies… I just roll them into balls and then bake them. But… these you need to cut them out with a cookie cutter. I wasn’t sure if they would be workable, but they were. I sprayed my hands with cookie spray and then rolled out the cookie with a rolling-pin on a floured surface. They cut out really nice and baked really nice. Not bad… for a cake cookie.
Here is the recipe…
- ¾ cup butter, melted
- 2 egg yolks
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract
- 1 package white cake mix (just the dry powder not the ingredients to make it)
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
- In a large bowl combine the butter, egg yolks, and vanilla extract.
- Blend in cake mix.
- Roll out dough on lightly floured surface.
- With a cookie cutter, cut out shape.
- Place cutouts on ungreased cookie sheet.
- Bake at 375 degrees for 10-12 minutes, but do not over cook them.
- Remove from oven and let cool on wire rack.

If you are in a hurry and need a great simple cookie recipe that your kids are sure to love… make these Heart Cake Cookies.
I still can’t believe these are cake cookies. Usually to get a good cut out cookie, they need to be a sugar cookie. But… they aren’t and I love that!
Ten minutes to bake, 10 minutes to throw them together… no joke. The easiest cookies ever! You can also frost them with a frosting if you would like, but that would take more time. I just added the sprinkles right before baking and it adds a touch of color to the cookie!
Yes… they are a great cookie in my book!
I hope you enjoy them as well.
