Chewy cookies that are a twist on a St. Louis staple.

Cake Mix Cookies

Chewy Cookies

To achieve that perfectly chewy cookie, there are a few tips I like to use.

Whip Butter and Cream Cheese

By whipping the butter and cream cheese you are adding in air to the batter which will make them light and fluffy.

Chill the Dough

Chilling your cookie dough is essential to further blend your ingredients (no grainy sugar), but also helps to make for an even chewier cookie!

How to Chill Dough

I first put the dough in the fridge, covered or in an airtight container. Chill for about 30-60 minutes. Then if you want to give it more chill time, be sure to remove dough to thaw a bit before balling.

Customize Cookies

Another tip is to customize the cookies. Change the cake flavor, add sprinkles to the powdered sugar when you toss dough, or add something like crushed peppermint.
