Dont you just love cookie recipes that are so easy to make? Cake box mix cookies are just like that, usually only 3-4 ingredients and its so so easy!

In this red velvet cookies recipe i used only a handful of ingredients:

  • Cake mix. I usually buy the cake mix that’s the store caries at the moment. It could be Betty Crocker, Pillsbury or Bakers corner.
  • Eggs. For this recipe you will need 1 nice big fresh egg.
  • Baking powder. Nothing fancy here, just a regular baking powder from any store will work.

Does the frosting remain soft or will it dry stiff?
