Here's a fun new cookie recipe!Grab a cake mix & some Golden Oreos and you're set.

It's cookie time!

And this one is FUN. If you have kids watch out - it will become a new favorite in the house. From the cake batter sprinkles to the crushed up Oreos, there is nothing in this cookie batter that will turn them away.

This recipe makes two dozen easy peasy cookies that will make your family jump for joy.

Do you ever refrigerate your cookie dough before baking?

If not, I highly recommend it. Chilling the dough helps to control the spread of them when baking. Getting that dough cold helps to solidify the fat {butter} in the dough, therefore the butter takes longer to melt, therefore not allowing the cookie to spread out as much!

How's that for a fun fact?

I've found a good hour helps with this, a few hours even better and overnight perfect!

You know me and cake mixes - I love using them as a shortcut in a recipe and this one is no exception. Remember my chocolate chip cake mix cookies? And more recently my Sheet Pan Cinnamon Roll Cake? Or my super fun Strawberry Upside Down Cake?

All three of these recipes have a cake mix base!

Hey, I've never claimed to be super gourmet when it comes to cooking. Rather, I'd prefer to make it easy for you guys while still giving you delicious recipes.

Look at that chewy bite!

Try not to overbake these - they are perfect just slightly golden on the edges with a soft center. They will harden up a bit as they cool. When you bite into them they'll have a bit of a crunch on the edges with a chewy center.

If you are lucky you'll get a white chocolate chip and the crunch of a golden Oreo in that bite too! And because I know you'll ask - Golden Oreos are found right next to the regular chocolate Oreos. Trust me, all stores have them!

Who is ready to bake these up?

I cannot wait to hear how you like them. My hope is that they will become a new family favorite! Best part? You only use half of the dry cake mix, so go ahead and wrap up the extra and make another batch once the first batch is gone.

If you make these and want to leave a star rating review below on the recipe card I'd be forever grateful!

  • 1 1/4 cups flour
  • 1 1/4 cups Funfetti boxed cake mix (half will be left over for another batch!)
  • 1/2 t baking soda
  • 1/4 salt
  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 T vanilla extract
  • 10 Golden Oreos, crushed + add'l for topping
  • 1/2 cup white chocolate chips, for topping

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees (if baking within the hour+).
In a stand mixer or large bowl using a hand held mixer, cream together the softened butter and sugars until smooth. Add in the egg until combined. Scrape down the side of the bowl and add in the vanilla extract.
Gently add the dry ingredients to the wet mixture - flour, cake mix, baking soda and salt. Mix on a low speed until combined. Add in the crushed Golden Oreos until mixed in.
Cover the dough with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 1 hour. Overnight is best!
When ready to bake, scoop out the dough with a cookie scoop into rounded balls and place 12 cookies on a cookie sheet. Stick a few white chocolate chips into the tops of the cookies, as well as any leftover crushed Oreos. Bake for 10 minutes. The centers will appear soft, but they will harden up.
Remove the cookies from the cookie sheet and place on a wire rack to cool. Keep stored in an airtight container for storage.
