Pretty easy cookie to make, and they were enjoyed by my whole family. I made 1/2 batch of cream cheese frosting to put on them (1/2 stick butter, 1/2 package cream cheese, couple of cups of powdered sugar and 1/2 t vanilla).
I also only had yellow cake mix, so I used it and put sprinkles in the dough. My kids were delighted to have them as an after school snack!

These tasted good and were so easy to make. We brought them to a family gathering and people were asking for the recipe:)

I just made these tonight and used a homemade cake mix "Homemade Yellow Cake Mix (Subtitute 18.25oz Betty Crocker Box)" from second2none. It worked beautifully. I also made the shortening based frosting from a different recipe and i made a mistake a didn't add enough powdered sugar but the cookie itself is great and the frosting too, just a bit more sweet.

My fiance's FAVORITE cookies! We use a cookie scoop and cook for 8 minutes. We also mix brands and use Betty Crocker rainbow chip frosting. They are delicious without frosting too. 2 boxes of cake mix 1 tub of frosting is what we use.

My youngest daugther and I made these one afternoon and while they were fun & easy to make we all thought they were too sweet for our liking. It is a very cakey & sweet cookie.

I made this recipe to try and replicate the soft frosted sugar cookies at the latte stands in Seattle. They are a lot like Lofthouse cookies but they are called "Uncle Seth's". I used a white cake mix and added Cardamom & Cinnamon to the batter. it turned them into a more grown up cookie. I also used a store bought Cream Cheese Frosting and added a bit of red coloring to get the pink color. I also made them with buttercream frosting, equally good. They are better the next day after being stored in an airtight plastic container. My family absolutely went crazy for them. My son even posted about them on FB. I will be trying a few other recipes but this one is an easy go to!

These were quite yummy! I didn`t frost them, but I`m sure they`d be even better with frosting!

These are so good! I made them with the kids with very little mess. I think they are better than the frosted cookies at the store!!

I just made these and can't stop eating them! The texture is fantastic and they taste so good! They are so simple and fast to make - I was done and cleaned up in less than a half hour. This is such a great recipe to have on hand!
