How fun are these sparkly cookies? I think they look like elf socks when they’re stacked up. LOL! The best thing about them besides their yummy taste is that they’re the easiest Christmas cookies ever, just 4 ingredients!
With the business of the holidays, I love that this recipe is fast and produces a great result with little effort. I say it again…just 4 ingredients! It’s a cake mix, eggs, Crisco Pure Canola oil and sugar for rolling/coating the cookies. If you really want to “mix it up” choose a colored cake mix or add food gel/coloring to the mix. We found a seasonal red and green colored cake mix, so that’s how our cookies turned out to be so vibrant.
Today we’re all hanging out at the house preparing everything for the holidays. These cookies make a fun treat to enjoy while we take a quick break. I love how festive and fun they are!
In the past, we’ve made these cookies by rolling them in powdered sugar but my husband added a fun holiday touch by rolling the cookies in colored sugar before baking them. What a great idea! You roll the cookies in the sparkling sugar before you bake them. That explains his green fingers. Bah ha ha!
Add the simple ingredients to a bowl and mix! We’re using Crisco products because we think they are great for baking! When you have confidence in a product it helps leave room for creative inspiration to make more yummy baking creations. Bring on the delicious baked goodness!
How cute are these?! Roll them in sugar and bake! They’ll flatten out like a cookie, no worries!
I’m glad these are fast because I’m eager to eat one and to get our holiday decorating finished. Our daughter comes home from college for winter break next week and I want her to see the house and feel like Christmas has begun, so she can relax…then we can bake some more of our favorite recipes! We like doing that together.
It won’t take you long to pick up the simple ingredients you need for this recipe. We got everything at Publix.
