Storage Of Cookies
These cookies can be stored in an airtight container or sealable bag on the counter. Make sure the cookies have fully cooled off from being cooked. Then place in the container for up to a week.
You are more than welcome to freeze any cookies you don’t eat right away. Store cookies in a freezer bag or airtight freezer container. They will store for 3-4 months.
Remove however many cookies you want and let them thaw at room temperature. Or defrost cookies in the microwave for a quicker thawing of the cookies.
Tips For Making Cake Mix Cookies
- Make sure to mix the cake mix batters in separate bowls. That way you get the defined colors in the cookies.
- Don’t add too much-powdered sugar to the outside of the cookies. Just enough to lightly coat.
- Make sure to leave space between the cookies on the baking sheet as they will spread out when baked.
- Allow cookies to cool on a baking rack, in a single layer. This will help prevent cookies from sticking.
- You can swap strawberry with a cherry cake mix, or swap out the lemon if you want a different flavor of cookies.
How to Know When Cookies Are Done
These cookies are meant to be soft, so you will cook once you see the cookies begin to crack on the top, and if you gently touch the top, they are not doughy in texture.
You can also stick a toothpick in the center to make sure there is no wet dough coming out when you stick in the cookies.
