Tips for perfecting this red velvet cake mix cookie recipe
The nice thing about this cake mix cookie recipe is so versatile that you can literally use any cake mix recipe. Maybe not a sponge cake mix but for a typical cake mix it’ll work great.
High Altitude Cake Mix Cookies
If you live 3,000ft or more above sea level, odds are if you’ve tried a cake mix cookie recipe in the past, the cookies may have turned out flat, crunchy, and wildly mediocre.
This flat disappointment is due to the leveners in your cake mix (like baking powder and baking soda), rise a lot faster in high altitudes and then deflate resulting in some flatness
Well, here’s a trick for you…
Add 2 tbsp of all purpose flour to help keep the structure of the cookie.
Chilling is recommended but not absolutely necessary
I prefer chilling this dough because it reduces the amount of spread leaving you with a thicc and soft cookie.
If you’re in a rush or lack patience (which, ya know, same), you can skip the chilling but you’ll need to be prepared to have a thinner slightly crispier cookie.
Make these extra aesthetic
You know those beautiful Pinterest worthy cookies you see all the time but struggle to recreate? You wanna know how to make those?
When the cookies first come out of the oven press a few extra white chocolate chips into the hot cookies.
And if the cookies are shaped a little wonky, take a glass slightly larger than your cookies and carefully swirl it around the edges while the cookies are still warm. This will reshape them to be those perfectly round, aesthetically pleasing beauties that we all love.
