  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Line 2 baking sheet with silicone baking mats.
  2. Beat cake mix, eggs, 1/2 cup flour, 3 tablespoons flour, and soybean oil together in a stand mixer until stiff.
  3. Divide and roll dough into 1-inch balls and arrange on prepared baking sheets and flatten to about 1/2-inch thick.
  4. Bake in preheated oven until somewhat firm in the center, 12 to 14 minutes. Remove from oven and let cookies sit undisturbed until set, about 5 minutes more.
  5. Spread a sheet of aluminum foil onto a countertop. Transfer cookies to foil to cool completely, at least 20 minutes.
  6. Beat confectioners' sugar, butter, shortening, half-and-half, and vanilla extract together with a hand mixer until smooth; spoon into a pastry bag and pipe onto cooled cookies or just spread onto cookies using a spatula.


  • Partner tip: Reynolds® Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.

These were great! I used peanut oil instead of soybean, and I'll admit I cheated and used canned frosting. But the cherry frosting with sprinkles really worked with these cookies. And they rea...

AWESOME !! Substituted Butter instead of Soybean oil, and, used "Melting Chocolates" (the microwaveable kind) as the icing. Will DEFINITELY be making these again !! :)
