crinkle cake cookies - for christmas!

Love me a good alliteration. 

I made these for the home tour because they were easy and festive and they were such a big hit! I haven't given out a recipe that often in quite a long time! So I figured I would share it here as well. I doubled the recipe and got about four dozen cookies, depending on how big you make your balls. Ahem.

A box of white cake mix
2 eggs
1/3 cup oil
Powdered sugar
Red and green food coloring 
Combine the cake mix, eggs and oil until smooth. Add in your food coloring until you get the desired shade. I did one box of red and one box of green. Then refrigerate for about a half hour. The dough was super sticky and like a play-dough consistency. I just dipped my hands in the powdered sugar first before rolling the dough into teaspoon sized balls and then rolling it again in the powdered sugar till it was nicely coated. Using parchment paper or a nonstick pan, bake at 375° for 9-11 minutes.
And wala! Festive and fun and easy! You could do these all year long, red, white and blue for the Fourth or pink for Valentine's Day.... The sky is the limit!



  1. I freakin love crinkle cookies. The one year i did a Grinch crinkle cookie recipe on the blog !

  2. As "Christmas approached, the town became gorgeous".
