Recipe: How to Make Red Velvet Crinkle Cookies

While the kids were at school today, I made a batch of Red Velvet Crinkle Cookies.  I found a box of Red Velvet cake mix last week while I was cleaning out the pantry. I was planning on baking a cake, until I noticed a recipe for cookies on the side of the box.  Cookies from a cake mix?  Who knew?

I was able to whip up 3 dozen cookies in about 45 minutes start to finish.

They were delicious {and a wee bit addicting}.

Ingredients {slightly adapted from a Duncan Hines recipe}

6 tablespoons butter
1 cup powdered sugar
1 teaspoon cornstarch
1 box Duncan Hines® Red Velvet Cake Mix
2 large eggs

Baking Instructions

Preheat oven to 375°F. Melt butter; set aside to cool. Place powdered sugar and cornstarch in shallow dish. Mix with a fork to blend.
Place cake mix, cooled butter and eggs in large mixing bowl. Mix by hand until well blended and a dough forms.
Form dough into 1-inch balls and roll in powdered sugar. Place on cool, silpat lined baking sheets about 2 inches apart.
Bake, 1 sheet at a time, in center of oven for 9 to 11 minutes or until set. Cool 1 minute. Transfer to wire rack to cool completely.
Store in airtight container with wax paper or parchment separating layers.

For consistency, use a small scoop (1 to 1-1/4 inches in diameter) to form dough into balls.
For best results, bake only one sheet of cookies at a time. If two are baked at once, rotate sheets midway through baking. {Recipe Credit}

    Cake mix cookies are the best! So easy and very cheap since cake mix is pretty much always free. I just got this cake mix at Fred Meyer last week. I’ll have to try these!
