COUNTDOWN TO CHRISTMAS COOKIES – WEEK 1
JUST EIGHT MORE WEEKS UNTIL CHRISTMAS EVE! CAN YOU BELIEVE IT?
Yeah, me either! This year has flown by and that means that Christmas is going to be here in the blink of an eye. Man oh man, it makes my head spin! Think about it, in the next eight weeks what will you accomplish? Thanksgiving, holiday parties, shopping, decorating, Christmas parade, you name it.
So y’all, I’m here to help! Just like last year, for the next eight weeks, I will be featuring some of my favorite holiday cookies in this countdown to Christmas cookie series.
To start this series off, I am bringing you cake mix cookies. Seriously one of my all-time favorite cookies, and truly not just for the holiday season. They are so good. So easy, and can be made for any occasion. The crisp edges, soft centers, a great texture and flavor, so good! Seriously we ate this entire batch in under 24 hours.
Cookies can be Made In Minutes
These cookies are made with a box of cake mix, eggs, oil and vanilla extract. The ingredients are stirred together until you get a thick dough. I like to add some sprinkles to the dough, then roll the balls of dough in more sprinkles for a festive look. All that’s left is to bake the cookies and then it’s time to enjoy your treat!
Roll in sprinkles
TA-DA! YOU HAVE Cake Mix COOKIES!
Cake Mix Cookies
- 18 ¼ ounce box white cake mix
- 2 eggs
- ½ cup vegetable oil
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 cup sprinkles divided use
Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or a nonstick baking mat.
In a large bowl, mix together the white cake mix, eggs, oil and vanilla extract until smooth.
Stir in ¼ cup of the sprinkles.
Roll the dough into tablespoon sized balls.
Pour the remaining ½ cup of sprinkles onto a plate. Roll the balls of dough around in the sprinkles to coat.
Place the balls of dough 2 inches apart on the prepared baking sheet. You will need to work in batches.
Bake for 8-10 minutes or until cookies are set and lightly browned
Cool, then remove from the baking sheet and repeat the baking process with the remaining dough. Serve immediately, or store in an air tight container for up to 3 days.
