“I made these cookies today for my hubby to bring to work with him. Yes, that's right...he has to work on Christmas Day! Bah Humbug! Note: The prep time listed includes the time to refrigerate the dough before baking.”
4 dozen cookies

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 517.37 g box Betty Crocker super moist white cake mix
  • 118.29 ml vegetable oil
  • 78.78 ml egg white, plus
  • 44.37 ml egg whites
  • 4.92 ml vanilla extract
  • 283.49 g bag Nestle swirled holiday morsels, the red & green ones are beautiful in this cookie
  • 118.29 ml sweetened flaked coconut

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Line 3 cookie sheets with parchment paper (this stuff is fantastic!).
  3. Combine all ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Mix on medium speed until well combined.
  4. Chill the dough in the refrigerator for about 20 minutes. This will make it much easier to work with.
  5. Using a cookie scoop (the Pampered Chef one works wonderful for this), drop the dough onto the prepared cookie sheets leaving about 1 inch between them.
  6. Bake for about 15 minutes or until the cookies are just golden brown.
  7. Allow to cool for a few minutes before removing to a wire cooling rack.
