Butter Cake Blossom Cookies Recipe

Baking cookies is a holiday tradition in my home, and peanut butter Kiss cookies are a favorite among my family. This year I also began experimenting with Christmas cookies made with boxed cake mixes. I recently made a batch of delicious butter cake crinkles using some butter recipe yellow cake mix. Because I love the light chewy butter flavor so much, I then modified the recipe to make some equally delicious butter cake blossom cookies.

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375°.
  2. Unwrap the chocolate Kisses.
  3. Combine the powdered sugar and corn starch in a small bowl.
  4. Beat together the softened butter and eggs in a large bowl.
  5. Slowly add the cake mix to the butter mixture. Combine thoroughly.
  6. Drop teaspoons of the cookie dough into the powdered sugar mixture.
  7. Roll the dough ball in the powdered sugar until thoroughly covered.
  8. Form the powdered sugar-covered dough into a ball.
  9. Place the powdered sugar-covered dough ball on an ungreased cookie sheet. Leave 2 inches between the dough balls.
  10. Bake the cookies for 9 minutes or until the bottoms begin to brown.
  11. Immediately press a chocolate Kiss into the centers of the baked cookies.
  12. Allow the baked cookies to rest for a minute before removing from the cookie sheet.
  13. Allow the cookies to cool and the chocolate Kiss to harden.
  14. Store the butter cake blossom cookies in an airtight container.
