Red Velvet Crinkle Cookies



Merry Christmas to all of you ..It is finally Christmas Day before I could post this recipe.


It is the Holiday Season!! It is that time of the year when there are festivities everywhere! It is a season of giving.. It is also the season of meeting deadlines before the Christmas break. That with all the events happening, not to mention regular work, it leaves very little time to go on a baking spree. You still want to make stuff.. That's why I made these crinkle cookies!! The good news: they were a huge hit at work and everywhere I brought them! 



The best news: they are super easy and a no-brainer to make. It takes very little time. The reason being that they are made from a red velvet cake mix by Duncan Hines. You can find the recipe on the box and online here.



Today I am sharing this recipe with you.

In a bowl mix together cornstarch and powdered sugar and keep ready.

In a bowl mix together cake mix, eggs, butter and lemon zest until well mixed. 


Pinch a little of the dough and make a 1 to 1.5 inch ball. I used an ice cream scoop to do this. Do this with all available dough.


Now roll each of the balls in powdered sugar mixture and place it on the baking sheet 2 inches apart. 



Bake for 8-10 mins or until a toothpick when inserted comes out clean.



Cool on a cooling rack. 



Store in airtight container when cooled. Stays fresh up to 10 days!



Enjoy!

I am sharing these delicious cooking at my dear friend Angie's Fiesta Friday #203. If you haven't partied there yet, you should. It is super fun!


Cooking made easy: 


Keeping the cookie dough in the freezer for some time makes it easier to handle the dough. 

Tip for healthy living: 


Making snacks at home is much healthier and better for them than store bought ones.
