Cake Mix Cookie Press Recipe
1 Package white cake mix (18.25 oz.)
2 3/4 oz. cups all purpose flour
1 lb. (4 sticks) butter or margarine, divided (do not use vegetable spread)
egg white (optional)
Optional decorations: colored sugar crystals, sprinkles, chopped nuts etc.
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In Small batter bowl, microwave 2 sticks of the
butter on HIGH 1 minute or until melted. Slice remaining butter into f1/2 inch
pieces; add to melted butter, tossing to coat. Allow butter to stand 3-05
minutes or until softened.
2. Meanwhile, in large bowl, combine cake mix and flour; blend well using
stainless steel whisk, breaking up any large lumps. Whisk butter until smooth
and free of lumps. If necessary, microwave butter an additional 10-20 seconds or
until creamy and pourable. DO NOT MELD COMPLETELY.
3. Pour butter all at once into dry ingredients, scraping butter from batter
bowl. Mix until dry ingredients are incorporated and dough is smooth. (If dough
is too stiff to stir, knead by hand until smooth).
