How to Make the Recipe:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Line your cookie sheet(s) with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. In the bowl of a stand mixer, combine the box cake mix, egg, and Cool Whip. Mix until well combined, scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed. A large bowl and hand mixer can be used in place of a stand mixer.

  4. Place the coated cookie dough balls onto the prepared baking sheets, spacing them a few inches apart.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven for 10-12 minutes, or until the edges are set and the center is no longer glossy.
  6. Allow the baked cookies to cool completely on the baking sheet before transferring them to a wire cooling rack or serving platter.
