Editorial Reviews

Review

I've been able to review this amazing cookie cookbook called The Ultimate Cake Mix Cookie Book by Camilla Saulsbury. The book features 375 recipes that all start with a box of cake mix. If Camilla's name sounds familiar to you, you may know her from Food Network's Ultimate Recipe Showdown Best Cookie Recipe (she was the winner). Her recipes in this book are so easy to follow and the ingredients are all things that you probably have in your house, or you at least know where they are in the grocery store.

The book is broken down into three different types of cookies, drop cookies, bar cookies and specialty cookies. I've decided to break my review into three sections as well. This one is for her drop cookies. There are a ton of recipes in this section and it was honestly hard to narrow down my selection. I decided to make the chocolate-covered strawberry cookies. These cookies will be perfect for our Valentine's Day bake sale at church!

All of us loved these cookies, even Scott who is not a huge strawberry fan.

The recipes are good, require basic ingredients that you can find in any supermarket, and easy to follow. However, if you already owned Camilla Saulsbury's previous books :Cookie dough delights, No bake cookie, Brownie mix bliss,Cake mix cookies ( like I do), don't waste you money buying this book because it has the same (most to all) recipes from those 4 books.. The only difference is this book has some pictures and is a hardcover.. Otherwise, this is a good book to buy if you never owned any of the mentioned books above

BUY THIS BOOK!!! YOUR KITCHEN WILL SMELL WONDERFUL!!!! YOUR FRIENDS WILL ASK FOR MORE!!!!

That was the short version of my review.

To the specifics:

Searching through the index of cookie recipes in this book as a starting point to tell you about many of the recipes I have tried, I realized that I still had 11 pages to go and a full list of fabulous cookie recipes that I have made in my home. This is a treasure in my cooking library. To those who own Camilla's previous books: what could be better than a consolidated hardcover with everything in one spot? To those wishing for more pictures: a picture may be worth a thousand words, but a delectable cookie fresh from the oven is worth a thousand Christmases, children's joys, and shared kitchen experiences to compensate. Stop worrying about the pictures, and BAKE. The cookies will turn out right, because the instructions are foolproof, and there is a lovely and informative introduction to the basics of cooking (from buying an oven thermometer to ensure accuracy, to the meaning of "fold"). I have never come across something so comprehensive, fun to read, and delicious all in one (I'm still trying to figure out how it's delicious simply upon reading, but I need more time to figure that one out).

Whenever I have made one of Camilla's recipes, the results are the same: I always share the goods. The folks I with whom I share inevitably eat an extraordinary number of cookies, and they ask for more. They call, email, or simply demand, straight to my face, "When are you making more cookies?" One student sent me a text message video saying that he would pay me to bake more of these cookies (specifically, the Thanksgiving Cranberry White Chocolate Jumbles). I always credit Camilla with the hard work.

I made several of the recipes from this book and packed them in tins for Christmas gifts. My coworkers raved about the cookies and asked for the recipes. They truly are time saver recipes and amazingly easy to make. I have been very happy with every creation so far. One of the recipes includes cut-up Rolos. Tastes amazing!

I used to make cookies from scratch- until I found Camilla's book! Now I'm a complete convert to starting with boxed mixes. It saves a huge amount of time and I find myself making cookies I never would have attempted otherwise. Every time I pick up the book I'm inspired to make dozens of different recipes! There's one for every occasion. And they always win raves from my family and friends. Don't miss: Carmelicious Turtle Brownies, S'mores Brownies, Pumpkin Whoopies with Cinnamon Fluff Filling.
Her recommendations for variations are a pleasure and her baking tips at the front of the book (about ingredients, knowing your oven, storing cookies, etc.) are hugely helpful for bakers with all levels of experience. I'm giving a copy to several relatives for the holidays this year.

I love a quick fix and this book has many different ways to make my cookies great and save time. May not be scratch, but are surely homemade.

Excellent cookie shortcut cookbook. Crispy Carmel Bars were the best, husband took some to work and the bowl was empty in no time.

Purchased this cookbook only because I've seen the author on a couple of recipe contests. Enjoyed her and hoped her cookbook would be just as good. And it is. The recipes are very easy to follow, simple to use and yummy.

Only reason for the 4 star rating is I wished there were more images of the recipes. Other than that great purchase. Will continue to use for many years.

My wife and I like every cookie we have tried so far. There is a wonderful variety of different types of cookies with different types of ingredients. I have found that I can easily alter the basic recipe (e.g., substituting a different favor cake mix, making the cookies bigger or smaller, etc.) and still have good results. I love the peanut butter cookies--they are not as oily as traditional recipes and the under-flavor of the cake mix gives them interest!
