If you’ve read any of my holiday posts, you know how much we love making cookies and treats during the Christmas season. We even devote an entire day to making cookies which we call “cookie day”. It’s one of my very favorite Christmas traditions.

A few years ago, while looking for a new holiday cookie to make, I stumbled upon a recipe for chocolate crinkle cookies. Since I’m always on the lookout for quick and easy recipes, I quickly became interested in a cookie recipe that used a cake mix as its main ingredient. 

Despite being skeptical, we added it to our cookie list for cookie day and after making this easy cake mix cookie recipe, discovered that it was not only simple to prepare but delicious. So, delicious in fact, it’s a must-make cookie every year (my youngest son insists).

Because of this, I thought it would be fun this year to find even more cake mix cookie recipes to add to our cookie list but also share in case you are looking for easy cookie recipes to make this holiday season.

Here are 20 Cake Mix Christmas Cookie Recipes. These shortcut cookie recipes would be perfect for a last-minute gift idea or a cookie exchange.
