  • 1 box 15oz Box Cherry Chip Cake Mix *See Note ($1.24)
  • 2 eggs ($0.16)
  • ½ cup vegetable oil ($0.24)
  • ¼ cup flour ($0.02)


  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  • In a large bowl mix together cake mix, flour, eggs, and oil until smooth.
  • Scoop with a 2 tablespoon sized cookie scoop and roll into little balls. Place evenly on baking sheet spaced at least 2inches apart.
  • Bake for about 10 minutes until the edges are lightly golden brown.
  • Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheet for about 5 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.


Cake mixes are not created equally. Some are 18oz where others are 15oz. This means that recipe results will vary greatly. Adding in the ¼ cup of flour to your recipe when it's 15oz will get you the same great tasting results as you'd expect from a larger box.
These cookies don't spread out too far, so if you want them in small sizes, leave them round on the baking sheet.
If you want to frost them like I did, then stick a small square of parchment paper or wax paper over the top of each mound and press down lightly with the bottom of a glass.
 You can keep your cherry chip cake mix cookies stored for up to a week or two in an airtight container at room temperature before they start getting stale.
These cookies can be frozen for up to 3 months in an airtight container. To thaw and eat simply place a few on the counter and wait about 15 minutes for them to come to room temperature.
