- White cake mix – You can easily use an angel food cake mix as well to make these cookies, though they won’t hold their shape like white cake mix does. Change up the cake mix flavor to change up the taste.
- Vanilla extract – Stir in the vanilla and mix it well with the rest of the ingredients. It’s a huge flavor enhancer and important addition.
- Nonfat Greek Yogurt – This is so important to add to make the dough. Make sure that you fold it in well with the other ingredients, or use a hand mixer at low speed/medium speed to mix.
Step One – Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Step Two – To make the angel food cake mix cookies, mix the cake mix, yogurt, and vanilla in a bowl.
Step Three – To make the prepared baking sheet, spray the cookie sheet with nonstick spray or line it with parchment paper.
Step Four – Use a cookie scoop or a heaping tablespoon, and drop the angel food cake mix cookie dough onto the lined baking sheet. Leave 2 inches between each one.
Step Five – Put the pan in the oven and bake for 12-15 minutes. The tops and edges should be lightly browned.
Step Six – Remove from the oven and put the cookies on wire racks to let cool completely. (You can leave them on the baking sheet as well but remember that cookies will continue to cook when they’re left on a hot surface.)
How to Serve Angel Food Cake Mix Cookies
- There are so many ways to enjoy this recipe! You can put them on a plate and let everyone grab and eat, or add some fun toppings as well. Don’t forget a big glass of milk!
- Shredded coconut on top would taste delicious, as would mini chocolate chips. Adding a little bit of sweet flavor on top is always a hit with the kids! (and adults!)
- If you really want to take these to the next level, treat them like mini angel food cookie cakes! You can lightly dust them with powdered sugar or even add fresh cherries or strawberries right on top. All that’s left then to do is put on a dollop of whipped cream.
Yes, once you bake the cookies and let them cool, you can then store them in an airtight container and place them in the fridge or the freezer. For the best taste and texture, thaw and eat this cookie recipe when 3 months.
