Tips on How to Make Caramel Spice Cake Mix Cookies
But there are a few quick tips and recommendations I’ve included below that help make this recipe even more simple to make.
Cake Mix Size – Use a 15.25 ounce box of spice cake mix for this recipe. This is the size most commonly sold in grocery stores. I love using Duncan Hines or Betty Crocker, but any brand will work.
Use an Electric Mixer – Do your arm a favor and use an electric mixer to mix your dough. This cookie dough batter is very thick and sticky and using an electric mixer makes it so much easier and is a lot quicker than stirring by hand.
Chill The Dough – As mentioned above, cake mix cookie dough is very thick and sticky to work with. After mixing your cookie dough and before baking in the oven, it is imperative to chill it for a minimum of 15 minutes in the fridge. It makes it a lot easier to work with!
Use Parchment Paper – I ALWAYS recommend using parchment paper when baking cookies in the oven, but I especially encourage it for these cake mix cookies. Simply line your baking sheet with parchment paper, and not only will your cookies bake in the oven more evenly, but it makes clean-up a breeze.
Use a Cookie Scoop – Last but not least, use this medium size cookie scoop for scooping out your dough. It’s quick, simple, and you can use this affordable cookie scoop set for SO many things!
Want to make these cookies slightly different? Here’s just a few delicious ideas!
- For a different flavor – Substitute caramel bits for white chocolate chips, butterscotch, or cinnamon chips or do half and half a delicious combo.
- For an added crunch – Add in 1/2 cup of your favorite baking nut such as pecans, walnuts, or almonds.
- For texture – Add in 1/4 cup old fashioned oats and 1/4 cup nuts
- To make them even sweeter – Roll the cookie dough balls in a cinnamon sugar mixture before baking. (I recommend 1/4 cup sugar + 1 tbsp cinnamon)
Spice Cake Mix Cookie Storage Instructions
Store leftover caramel spice cake cookies in an airtight container for up to 5 days. Use parchment paper between layers so they do not stick together.
Spice cake mix cookies can also be frozen for up to 3 months in a freezer safe bag or container.
Cookies can be thawed at room temperature and re-heated in the microwave until warm, or can also be re-heated from frozen for 30 seconds to 1 minute, until warm.
