Anyone who has tried to whip something up in their dorm knows it’s nearly impossible to keep a dorm room constantly stocked with the right baking ingredients. Except maybe for the steady supply of chocolate chips, but we all know those are just for eating straight out of the bag… right?
Fear not, here I’ve provided a 3-ingredient recipe that will satisfy your cravings for quality cookies in next to no time at all. You just need a box of cake mix, oil, and eggs—totally doable. If you’re feeling creative, you can even play around with different combinations and mix-ins. I’ve included two of my favorites for a little inspiration. Bon Appétit.
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 15 minutes
Servings: 2 dozen cookies
1 box cake mix
1/3 cup vegetable oil*
*Cake mixes have a tendency to differ, so if the dough seems too dry, feel free to add a little extra oil.
1. Preheat oven to 350°F (325°F for dark or nonstick pans) and grease cookie sheets.
2. Place cake mix, oil and eggs in a large bowl and mix until well blended. (Add any mix-ins at this point).
3. Drop dough by spoonfuls onto the cookies sheets, about 2 inches apart.
4. Bake for 9 to 11 minutes in the oven. When done, remove pan from oven and marvel at your baking prowess. Let cool for 2 minutes on pan and then go eat some cookies.
