    Holiday Velvet Cake Cookies

    Holiday Velvet Cake Cookies Recipe

    Last year after finding a delicious recipe for Grinch cookies on Pinterest, I modified the original to make pretty green and red holiday velvet cookies too.

    Ingredients

    • 1 box of holiday velvet or red velvet cake mix
    • 6 tablespoons of softened butter
    • 2 eggs
    • 2 tablespoons of water
    • 1/2 cup of powdered sugar
    • 1 teaspoon of corn starch

    Directions

    1. Preheat the oven to 375°.
    2. Combine the powdered sugar and corn starch in a small bowl.
    3. Beat together half the softened butter, eggs, and water in large bowl.
    4. Slowly add the first pouch of holiday velvet cake mix to the butter mixture. Combine thoroughly.
    5. Drop teaspoons of the cookie dough into the powdered sugar mixture.
    6. Roll the dough ball in the powdered sugar until thoroughly covered.
    7. Form the powdered sugar-covered dough into a ball.
    8. Place the powdered sugar-covered dough ball on an ungreased cookie sheet. Leave 2 inches between the dough balls.
    9. Bake the cookies for 9 minutes or until the bottoms begin to brown.
    10. Allow the baked cookies to rest for a minute before removing from the cookie sheet.
    11. Repeat with the second pouch of holiday velvet cake mix and the second half of the softened butter, eggs, and water.
    12. Store the holiday velvet cake cookies in an airtight container.
