How to Make Angel Food Cake Mix Cookies
Once you have your simple ingredients prepped and ready, it’s time to get baking!
Prepare the dough by combining the angel food cake mix, water and egg in a bowl until blended together completely.
Next, use a cookie scoop to scoop teaspoonfuls of dough onto an ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake your Angel Food Cake Cookies in the preheated oven 8-10 minutes or until golden brown around the edges.
Hint: Use a new piece of parchment paper for each set of cookies you put into the oven, as even though this is an easy recipe, we are not using non stick cooking spray, so the cookies do stick to the parchment paper.
Allow them to cool on the cookie sheet before transferring them to a cooling rack or plate. Enjoy your freshly made angel food cake mix cookies!
