How to Make Cake Mix Jello Cookies
Start by preheating your oven to 350 degrees F.
Then, line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and set it aside.
Making the dough
In a large mixing bowl, combine the dry cake mix, egg, and vegetable oil using a whisk or hand mixer. Mix until combined.
Next, divide the dough into 2 separate bowls.
Then, add one box of dry Jello mix into each bowl.
Use a hand mixer to evenly distribute the Jello throughout the dough. Also, use your hands to knead it together to make the dough come together. The dough will be thick like playdoh.
Proceed to use a cookie scoop or tablespoon size spoon to scoop the dough out and place it onto your prepared baking sheet.
Next, roll each spooned dough into a ball and then flatten it out slightly with your hand or the back of a spoon.
Bake in the oven for 10-12 minutes or until the edges look set.
Let the cookies cool on the baking sheet for 2 minutes before moving them onto a wire rack to cool completely.
Serve slightly warm and enjoy!
How long are Jello cookies good for?
You can keep these cooled cookies in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 or 4 days. A trick my mother in law taught me is to put a piece of bread in the cookie container, the cookies absorb the moisture from the bread and stay soft for a couple days longer.
Can I freeze cookies made with jello?
Yes, these cookies freeze wonderfully. Simply place the cookies into an airtight container and freeze for up to three months. Let the cookies thaw on the counter before eating so that they are softer enough to bite into. This only takes a few minutes for a single cookie or two.
