It’s always a good time to rediscover the age-old comfort of cookies. Try
conjuring an image more comforting than a warm kitchen, infused with the
scents of sweet vanilla, fragrant cinnamon, and fresh butter, and, on the kitchen
counter, a cooling rack piled high with fresh-from-the-oven delights studded
with chocolate chips and crunchy pecans. It is a cause for celebration in itself—
even more so when the cookie recipe is as quick and convenient as opening a
package of cake mix.
That’s right—cake mix. A standard 18.25-ounce package of cake mix is the
secret to a wealth of homemade cookies. Even better, the results are assuredly
irresistible. A package of cake mix gives home bakers the same head start for
baking cookies as for baking cakes. Cake mix simplifies steps and ingredients
and offers insurance (in the form of accurately premeasured and mixed flour,
sugar, and leavening) that the time spent baking will lead to sweet success time
and again. With a few extra ingredients, turns of the spoon, and whirs of the
mixer, cake mix can make any home cook a prize cookie baker.
And oh, what cookies to choose from! You may have come across a handful
of cake mix cookie recipes here and there, but never a collection as extensive as
this. Turn the pages and you’ll find an enticing array of cookie options: think
easy-as-can-be drop cookies, made from spoonfuls of dough dropped onto a
cookie sheet; formed, fancy, and filled cookies, that are either shaped into balls,
rolled and cut into fun shapes, or filled with jams, candies, and other treasures;
and blissful bar cookies, baked with ease in square or rectangular baking pans,
then cut into handheld pieces. They’re all here, and they’re all scrumptious,
satisfying, simple to make, and pretty to serve.

Quite a few all-American favorites can be found throughout the book:
Chocolate Chip Cookies, Oatmeal Raisin Cookies, Nutty Jam Thumbprints, and
Dark Chocolate Brownies are but a few. New takes on classic European cookies
are also well-represented, including crunchy Italian biscotti, tender French
madeleines, and rich Viennese teacakes.
Finally, a hearty helping of serendipity is stirred up to create a host of modern
cookie options, guaranteed to tempt one and all, and destined to become classics
in their own right. How about a Giant Cookie Pizza for your next birthday party?
Or Granola Chocolate Chunkers or Fresh Berry Cheesecake Bars for a picnic at
the park? How about a holiday cookie plate filled to overflowing with White
Chocolate Cranberry Bars, Caramel-Macchiato Thumbprints, Spumoni Chunk
Cookies, and Crushed Peppermint Snowballs? And why not surprise (and thrill)
your family on a busy weekday morning with healthy Whole Wheat Pumpkin
Breakfast Cookies or Chocolate-Nut Power Bars? This is the stuff of which
sweet dreams are made.
Once the cookie baking commences, one thing will immediately become selfevident:
each and every cookie in this collection will lead home bakers—and the
lucky recipients of their efforts—straight to the comfort zone. So why wait? Don
an apron, grab a bowl, and start mixing up some delicious fun. Be it ever so
humble, there’s no taste like a homemade cookie.
