Cake Mix Cookies-Butter Pecan With Coconut

A week ago I'd made chocolate chip cake mix cookies and my family loved them. Since then my husband had been asking for white cake cookies as white birthday cake is his favorite. The only other cake mix I had on hand was butter pecan so I thought I'd give that one a try. I changed the recipe slightly as to the oil I used, and ended up with a few extra cookies in the process.

Butter Pecan Coconut Cake Mix/Box Cookies

Cook Time
Prep Time: 10 minutes 
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Ready in:    20 minutes
Yield: 28 cookies


  • 1 box of Betty Crocker Butter Pecan flavored cake mix
  • 1/2  of a cup of butter or margarine 
  • 2 Tbs. of canola or vegetable oil
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 of a cup of sweetened shredded coconut


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit placing the oven rack in the middle of the oven.
  2. Line a baking or cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  3. Add the contents from the box of the butter pecan cake mix to a medium size mixing bowl.
  4. Next add in the butter, canola oil, one large egg, and the coconut.
  5. With an electric beater on the low setting, beat all the ingredients until well mixed.   
  6. Scrape the sides of the bowl and mix again to make sure there are no wet ingredients left. The cookie dough will be very thick.
  7. With a teaspoon scoop out the batter and gently roll in the palm of your hand to form a ball. Place the ball onto the cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Gently push down on the cookie dough ball.
  8. Continue to do this until all the dough is used.
  9. At this point you can decorate the cookies with sprinkles, or as I did using 1/2 of a maraschino cherry for some of the cookies. If you do use the maraschino cherries make sure to drain them really well before using them.
  10. Bake for nine minutes and ten turn the oven off leaving the cookies in the oven for another 1-2 minutes.
  11. Remove from the oven and transfer the cookies to a wire rack to cool.
  12. If you are going to use these cookies for a dessert hide them.
  13. ENJOY!
