These are the easiest cookies, and they are so good! I used yellow cake mix because my husband and I love the flavor of it, and both the dough and cookies were just delicious! Looking at the ingredients, I could not believe that these would work, but they do! I did chill the dough in the refrigerator before baking to make it easier to handle, but it was still very sticky. The easy preparation more than makes up for a sticky dough though. Thank you so much for posting, I will make these again and again!

Lemon cake mix is awesome! I think I ate more of the batter than the cookies!!!

Rollin in the Dough! October 03, 2009

I've been making these for years, and they have been nicknamed Angel Cookies in our family because they are so light and chewy. Before making the balls I apply cooking spray to my fingers. No need to chill the dough, but you do need to keep respraying your fingers. I also add colored sugar to the powdered sugar for the holidays before rolling the balls.

These cookies turned out awesome. I used a chocolate fudge cake mix and regular cool whip. The dough is hard to work with, but if you chill it in the fridge for about an hour it's much easier to deal with. I also used my cookie scoop and in between scoops I'd dip it into the powdered sugar, scoop the dough, then dropped the dough into the powdered sugar and rolled it around. My hands didn't get sticky and I got perfectly round and evenly sized cookies.

These are so great! I have made them twice (the first time the batter overwhelmed me with how gooey it was, but the second time I was prepared with a cookie scooper) and everyone loved them. The scoop helped tremendously, and I have repeatedly been asked to make more. I highly suggest trying these in lemon or strawberry! And remember, use a scooper!

I used Betty Crocker lemon cake mix. They made a very nice presentation on the cookie platter. The dough was difficult to work with. Mine took 12 minutes to bake.

I made two flavors: devil's food and spice for my cookie trays for Christmas this year. Because the batter is really sticky, I used a spoon to drop the batter into the powdered sugar and then rolled it around. My cookies were done in 10 minutes. I can't wait to try other flavors of cake mixes.

I made these tonight for a cookie exchange. I used devil food, lemon, and cherry cake mixes. I also added flavor to the powdered sugar with cocoa powder, lemon koolaid, and cherry koolaid. The batter was very sticky, so I used a small cookie scoop and dropped it right in the sugar then rolled it around. Thanks!
