    Spiced Orange Crinkles Recipe

    Spiced Orange Crinkles Recipe

    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.

    Ingredients

    • 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

    Directions

    1. Preheat the oven to 375°.
    2. Combine the powdered sugar and corn starch in a small bowl.
    3. Beat together the softened butter, eggs, water, and cloves in a large bowl.
    4. Slowly add the 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. Store the spiced orange crinkles in an airtight container.
