  • 1 8 oz container of cool whip - thawed
  • 1 18 oz package of cake mix - any flavor I used dark chocolate
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp cornstarch optional
  • Powdered sugar for dusting


  • Combine all ingredients (except powdered sugar) in a large bowl and stir until well combined
  • (Adding cornstarch is optional, but I've found that it always makes cookies a tad bit chewier, which is exactly how I like my cookies)
  • Allow dough to chill in refrigerator for about 1 hour
  • Preheat oven to 350 F
  • Pour about 1/2 cup of powdered sugar into a bowl, and roll a spoon full of cookie dough in your hands to create a ball - dough wil be very sticky
  • Place dough in powdered sugar and roll around until coated
  • Place on greased cookie sheet and bake for 10-12 minutes
  • Allow to cool on pan completely before serving
  • Enjoy!
