Kitchen essentials for cake mix recipes:

If you are trying to pick out some of the best supplies to stock your kitchen for cake mix recipes and baking in general, these are some of our favorites and must have items.

I like half sheet baking pans that are quality (hello no noisy pops or sloshed cookie dough from twisting), I line my cookie sheets with silicone baking mats. These are a must when doing cake mix recipes which can settle and become thin at lot easier than traditional cookie dough.

Of course mixing bowls, a mixer, spatula, and some whisks should be on your list if you don’t have ones that you love. I also like to have a set of cooling racks so that my recipes can properly cool before they’re scarfed down by my family!

Ingredients needed for butter pecan cake mix cookies:

You’ll need just four simple ingredients for this recipe. A butter pecan boxed cake mix, applesauce, powdered sugar (also called 10x sugar, confectioners sugar, icing sugar, etc.), and milk.

You can absolutely use whatever milk substitute you like if you either don’t have regular milk on hand or if you don’t do diary, etc. Make sure to double check your cake mix to be sure it doesn’t have dairy products if that is the case!
