“How The Grinch Crinkled Christmas” Cookies


  • 6 Tablespoons Butter
  • 1 cup Powdered Sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Cornstarch
  • 18-¼ ounces, weight Box French Vanilla Cake Mix
  • 2  Eggs
  • 1 bottle Green Food Coloring, About 60 Drops


Preheat the oven to 375°F.

Melt the butter and set aside to cool.

In a shallow dish, mix together the powdered sugar and cornstarch with a fork.

In a large bowl, mix together the cooled butter, cake mix and eggs. This will be a little hard to stir together. Add the green food coloring and make sure it is all mixed in. Take two spoons and drop a blob of dough in the powdered sugar mixture. Move it around with spoon until it is mostly covered in powdered sugar. Then, once it is covered, roll it into a ball and place it on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet.

Each oven is different, but I bake these for 9 minutes. (They won’t look done but they are.) Take them out of the oven and cool on the pan for one minute. Then move onto a cooling rack.
