Can You Substitute Cake Mix For Flour in Cookie Recipes?

For most recipes, yes! Cake mix contains most of the dry ingredients needed for cookies, including flour. Just double-check that the box mix contains necessary additional ingredients, such as baking powder.

Why Does Cake Flour Make Soft Cookies?

Cake flour is lighter than traditional flour, so it makes cookies that are soft and fluffy, rather than chewy.

Tips For Making Delicious Cookies

  • All ingredients should be at room temperature
  • Bake one batch at a time
  • Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet before moving them
  • For shaped cookies, let dough chill in refrigerator before baking
  • Choose the right flour for your desired consistency of cookie
  • Make sure eggs are well-beaten (whisked)
  • Use all-natural ingredients whenever possible

Is It Better To Make Cookies With Butter or Oil?

Cookies made with oil have a longer shelf-life; meaning, they are shelf-stable for longer than baked goods made with butter. When baking for a crowd or in advance of an event, you may want to choose oil over butter for this reason.
