Happy February! Who doesn’t like cookies? I’m a bit ahead on my Valentine’s Day celebrations but who cares; cookies!!! This Blush Rose Valentine Crinkle cookies are so easy to make. Check out the steps below and let me know what you think.
Blush Rose Valentine Crinkle Cookies
One box white cake mix
1/3 cup canola or vegetable oil
Red food coloring (I used gel because it’s so saturated – you only need a drop or two to get the beautiful pink shade)
Granulated sugar for coating (about 3 tablespoons worth)
Powdered sugar for coating (about 5 to 6 tablespoons worth)
Yields: approximately 18 cookies
Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
In a medium-sized bowl, combine cake mix, oil, and eggs. Whisk together until you get a doughy consistency. Add red food coloring and mix until you obtain desired shade. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and chill in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.
Remove from refrigerator. Pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees F.
Roll into one-inch balls and coat with a thin layer of granulated sugar. Once completely covered, coat generously with the powdered sugar. The first layer of granulated sugar will keep the powdered sugar from baking into the cookie. Place on lined cookie sheet about 2 to 3 inches apart from each other.
In an oven set to 350 degrees F, bake for 9 to 12 minutes. Let cool completely. And Voila!
You can whip up a batch of these cookies in no time! Wrap a dozen on these delicious cookies in cello bags & ribbons, and you got yourself the perfect Valentine’s Day treats!
