Cherry Cake Mix Cookies, Make It Monday

Cherry is one of my favourite flavours. Give me Cherry Coke, Cherry Sprite, cherry candy, the list goes on! It is fairly difficult to get your hands on cherry pieces for baking, though, at least here in Canada. So, I decided to go the cake mix cookie route with these. Baking from scratch can be a wonderful stress reliever, but cake mix cookies are a good way to come up with interesting flavours on a short amount of time- plus it is a good way to get into baking if you are new to it!

Cherry Cake Mix Cookies

Many cooks and bakers will pooh pooh at cake mixes, but I think that they certainly have their uses. If you are short on time (or ingredients), or feel like getting creative, you can use them for cookies, fudge, and even milk shakes. You could create these things from scratch, but you may investing far more time and money than it is worth. To use cake mix for cookies, you typically just tweak the standard cake mix recipe to suit the consistency of cookies!

    Pro tip? Use melted unsalted butter instead of oil. It will change your LIFE. 😉
    Cake mix cookies are the bomb. I have an entire cook book for them! Some of my best cookies start with cake mix base. Living on the cusp of high altitude it enables some consistency. 🎊🎉
