  • 1 box yellow cake mix (sift if lumpy)
  • 2 eggs
  • 6 tbsp melted butter
  • 1/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp butter flavor extract
  • Glaze
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tbsp water
  • 1 tsp butter flavor extract
  • powdered sugar for sprinkling on top of cookies


  • Preheat oven to 350°
  • Using hand mixer or stand mixer, beat eggs lightly
  • Add cake mix, then remaining ingredients & mix on low speed until combined. Dough will be thick.
  • Using a cookie scoop, portion out dough onto cookie sheet in desired size & flatten. They will spread out very little in the oven.
  • Bake on the bottom rack of oven for approximately 5 minutes, then move to middle rack for another 2 minutes or so. Ovens vary, so make a test cookie first, if desired. Do not overbake.
  • Cool on wire rack
  • Prepare glaze by combining all ingredients & heat in microwave until sugar is dissolved & it has slightly thickened. Stir every 30 seconds to avoid burning.
  • Drizzle on cookies
  • After glaze has set for a few minutes, sprinkle with powdered sugar


In all my years of sharing my baked goods, these cookies, by far, are the favorite.  Sometimes, I wonder why!  I guess, it's just that they are so easy that I don't expect them to be such a big hit.  But they always are.  And they are.....oh, so good.  As with any cake mix baked goods, they tend to dry out a little faster, so it's best to eat them soon after baking.  However, I've never had a batch last longer than a day.  Give them a try & let me know what you think!
