I am obsessed with making cake mix cookies for the holidays! I love the simplicity of making cookies by starting with a box of cake mix. I recently shared my new recipe for butter cake blossom cookies, which I based on the family favorite peanut butter Kiss cookies and my new butter cake crinkles. Another new Christmas cookie that I recently baked up was a batch of butter pecan blossom cookies for which I used a box of butter pecan cake mix.
- 1 box of butter pecan cake mix
- 1/2 cup of softened butter
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 cup of powdered sugar
- 1 teaspoon of corn starch
- chocolate Kisses
- Preheat the oven to 375°.
- Unwrap the chocolate Kisses.
- Combine the powdered sugar and corn starch in a small bowl.
- Beat together the softened butter and eggs in a large bowl.
- Slowly add the butter pecan cake mix to the butter mixture. Combine thoroughly.
- Drop teaspoons of the cookie dough into the powdered sugar mixture.
- Roll the dough ball in the powdered sugar until thoroughly covered.
- Form the powdered sugar-covered dough into a ball.
- Place the powdered sugar-covered dough ball on an ungreased cookie sheet. Leave 2 inches between the dough balls.
- Bake the cookies for 9 minutes or until the bottoms begin to brown.
- Immediately press a chocolate Kiss into the centers of the baked cookies.
- Allow the baked cookies to rest for a minute before removing from the cookie sheet.
- Allow the cookies to cool and the chocolate Kiss to harden.
- Store the butter pecan blossom cookies in an airtight container.
