3 Ingredient Cookies

Sharing is caring!



We all love a little sweetness in our lives, however, many of us don’t have the time or ingredients to get it done. Here’s a fun little treat your little ones can enjoy(or you). TheseΒ  3 ingredients cookies are made with items you probably have on hand.


Mix and Bake in the oven at 350 for 10 minutes!

Cool on a cooling rack

Β They’ll be a little lighter than you are use to depending on the cake mix used. image4

However my little ones love some fun frosting, which makes it even yummier!


Easy and ready quickly!

    I love making cookies from cake mix, they are delicious! πŸ™‚ I actually learned this in a home ec. class in middle school and have made multiple types of cookies this way ever since! I love your holiday version! Funfetti was always my favorite as a kid as well, I wish I could find the “rainbow chip” frosting again though!

    I’ve always loved the funfetti mix as a kid and haven’t had some in so long and can’t wait to go get a box to make these cookies for my daughter.

    I like this idea – so easy! I also love Funfetti, I once made ice cream cupcakes with Funfetti, too.

    Thanks so much for the Recipe on 3 Ingredient Cookies! I would have never have thought to make cookies out of a cake mix! How easy! These kind of cookies can be made for any occasion! I just might be making them for the 4th of July! I can use red, white, and blue coloring on the icing & decorations! I really do love this recipe! I’ve got cake mixes in the pantry as well as canned icing and I also have vegetable oil and eggs! WOW! I can make them now if I want! YUMMY! I just may have to make these before the 4th of July and also for the 4th of July! Thanks so much for sharing this delicious recipe on 3 ingredient Cookies with all of us! You know that I definitely do appreciate it! Thanks again! Michele πŸ™‚

    These would be great if someone else made them. The recipe is good, I just can’t cook. I tried these and forgot they were in the oven. I have a cold, so I couldn’t smell them until it was too late to save them.

    Again, I love how you cook! Sugar cookies are a favorite of mine. Especially iced. Whenever I bake cookies, I under bake them a bit. That way they stay soft and chewy. My husband likes his a bit crisp. I tell him to make his own or don’t complain. He eats them, so they can’t be too bad.

    Wow, so easy. I wonder if this would work with gluten free cake mixes? I’m trying to collect gluten free Christmas cookie recipes because my son needs to stay off gluten and I’m sure it couldn’t hurt the rest of us either.

    I say this with total respect, but I think this is cheating. Technically there are a bunch of ingredients, someone else just mixed them for you. πŸ™‚ I get it though, not enough time in the day to do it all.
