Giving my favourite crinkle cookies a holiday makeover.
The perfect addition to any Christmas sweet table.
I had never been part of a Christmas cookie exchange before. I see all sorts of ideas on Pinterest and I’m like, “Why haven’t I ever organized something like this?!”
Well, another Christmas season is fast-approaching and I still have yet to participate in one. Instead, I have teamed-up with a group of fabulous bloggers for a Cookie Blog Hop and I can’t wait to show you what they have up their sleeves!
Today, I’m sharing the recipe to my oh-so sweet and oh-so easy crinkle cookies.
These crinkle cookies are actually made from a cake mix with a few tweaks to the recipe. All it takes is some simple ingredients (that are most likely already in your pantry!) and a bit of imagination.
Holly Crinkle Cookies: The Cutest Cookies You’ll Make This Season
For the cookies:
1 box chocolate cake mix
1/3 cup canola oil
2 eggs, at room temperature
3 tbsp granulated sugar
6 tbsp confectioners’ sugar
For the decorations:
Red decorating frosting
White decorating frosting
3 oz. green fondant
Yields: approx. 18 cookies
Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
In a bowl, mix together chocolate cake mix, canola oil, and 2 eggs. Wrap the bowl with plastic wrap and chill for 30 minutes.
Remove from the refrigerator and preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.
Roll each cookie into 1 inch spheres and coat with granulated sugar, followed by the powdered sugar. Place on cookie sheet, about 1-2 inches apart.
Bake for 9 to 12 minutes and allow to cool completely before decorating.
To decorate, use a round frosting tip to create 2-3 circles on each cookie.
Roll 36 small spheres out of your green fondant. Flatten the fondant spheres, giving each a pointed end. Use scissors to cut out a leafy-edge.
On the back of each fondant leaf, frost out a bit of white decorating frosting. Secure 2 on each cookie.
Serve and enjoy!
Now, the moment you’ve all been waiting for! I teamed-up with a group of my favourite bloggers and I am so proud to present their delicious cookies… perfect for the holiday season!
