What makes a perfect Christmas cookie???
Background on the cookies… I had a good friend that I would go visit a lot when I was younger… her mother made these and since my first Snowflake cookie I have given this cookie the title that every cookie dreams of… “The Best Christmas Cookie.”
So here we go… all you need to do is pick your favorite cake mix. My favorite cake mix is lemon….
And the great thing about the ingredients… they were buy 1 get 1 free at Publix this week!
You will also need:
-Non-stick spray for your cookie sheet
-Confectioners Sugar (Powdered Sugar) to roll your cookies in
1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
2. Combine your eggs, cool whip, and cake mix. (Don’t over mix your dough!)
3. Take 2 spoons and get a little dough and put it in your dish for a roll in the powdered sugar. Don’t touch the dough until you have a little powdered sugar on it or it will stick your hands 🙂
4. Just put your powder sugared dough balls on a cookie sheet that has been sprayed with non-stick spray! (Don’t flatten the dough ball.)
5. Bake 10-12 minutes.
Get your set up ready!! I do dough bowl, powdered sugar dish, and then the cookie sheet directly next to the sugar. This will decrease the sugar getting everywhere in your kitchen.
You should be able to get 2 pans of cookies out of one batch of dough (around 50 cookies). You can easily make how many ever you need and store the dough in the fridge if you need to. I wouldn’t for more than one night though.
Depending on your oven… I would set your timer for 10 minutes. I let mine go an extra minute. There is no “golden brown” to look for to see if the cookies are done… Think of it like baking mini cakes. The center of the cookies should be done… if you are worried take a tooth pick and poke one. Be sure the toothpick doesn’t have any dough on it. Just like the toothpick trick with cakes 🙂
David and I went together and gave a donation (in the form of buying chickens!) to Samaritan’s Purse in honor of our wonderful class!
Now go bake some cookies… we are ONE week away from Christmas!
