St Patricks Day Cookies
Can you believe February is already over?
It’s starting to warm up outside and our Spring Break is just around the corner! “Luckily” for us, St. Patrick’s Day always falls during Spring Break. St. Patty’s day is one of our favorite holidays to craft around. Rainbows, leprechauns, pots of gold, the color green, etc… what could be better?
This year, I’ve decided on these Easy St Patrick’s Day Crinkle Cookies. We’ve already made them once (a little early, I know…but who really needs an excuse for cookies?!) and I know we’ll be making again closer to St Patrick’s Day.
A Great Cookie Recipe to Make With Kids
Everyone loves these St. Patrick’s Day Crinkle Cookies, and bonus, they are an easy cookie recipe to bake with kids. Personally, I love easy cookie and cake recipes that start with a box of cake mix. It’s the best baking hack ever! It makes the mixing and stirring so much easier because there’s no need for ten different ingredients spread out across the counter
It’s better now that my kids are a little older but even just two years ago my kitchen would look like a tornado every time we tried to bake together! Other than eating the cookies (of course), my kids favorite part is rolling the dough into balls and then dipping them in the powdered sugar. (Except for the multiple times I caught my son licking the sugar off the unbaked cookies – yep, those were his, lol.)
Ingredients in these Crinkle Cookies
Thes easy Crinkle Cookies cookies are so delicious and soft, just the way I like them! Besides the cake mix, there’s only 4 other ingredients so these might just take the award for easiest cookies ever. The food coloring could even be switched from green to another color to make these festive and appropriate for other celebrations as well.
- 1 box of white cake mix
- 2 eggs
- vegetable oil
- powdered sugar
- Optional: 10–12 drops green food color
