After discovering an easy and tasty recipe for Grinch cookies a few years ago, I began experimenting with cake mix cookies. In addition to the French vanilla Grinch cookies, I also made holiday velvet cake cookies. More recently, I experimented with orange and cloves, two flavors that I associate with Christmas. The result of my experiment was a batch of tasty spiced orange crinkles.
- 1 box of orange supreme cake mix
- 6 tablespoons of softened butter
- 2 eggs
- 2 tablespoons of water
- 1 teaspoon of cloves
- 1/2 cup of powdered sugar
- 1 teaspoon of corn starch
- Preheat the oven to 375°.
- Combine the powdered sugar and corn starch in a small bowl.
- Beat together the softened butter, eggs, water, and cloves in a large bowl.
- Slowly add the cake mix to the butter mixture. Combine thoroughly.
- Drop teaspoons of the cookie dough into the powdered sugar mixture.
- Roll the dough ball in the powdered sugar until thoroughly covered.
- Form the powdered sugar-covered dough into a ball.
- Place the powdered sugar-covered dough ball on an ungreased cookie sheet. Leave 2 inches between the dough balls.
- Bake the cookies for 9 minutes or until the bottoms begin to brown.
- Allow the baked cookies to rest for a minute before removing from the cookie sheet.
- Store the spiced orange crinkles in an airtight container.
