#ChristmasSweetsWeek is in full swing and I’m sharing my second recipe for the week.  I found a red velvet cake mix in the pantry and thought it would be nice to make a batch of red velvet crinkle cookies with it.  We don’t eat a lot of cake these days, but we love cookies!
This recipe is perfect for Christmas cookie trays and to give as gifts, or you can just do what we did and eat them while we were watching the new season of The Crown

In the last few years I have discovered a whole new world using cake mixes to make cookies.  My first thought after I got over the ease of using a cake mix was “why didn’t I find this out years ago when my girls were young?!”  Think about it, a cake mix has all of the dry ingredients in it as you would use for making cookies from scratch.  Just add the eggs and liquid (in lesser amounts) and you’ve got a cookie dough batter.  I love making cookies from scratch but sometimes you want cookies just a bit faster!

Since it is Christmas Sweets Week, you’ll be seeing delicious sweets and treats all week long. This event is co-hosted by Terri from Love and Confections and Christie from A Kitchen Hoor’s Adventures! What better way to celebrate the holidays than with food and fun?

  • 1 box Duncan Hines Red Velvet cake mix
  • 6 tbsp butter melted OR 6 tbsp oil
  • 2 eggs
  • powdered sugar


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray a cookie sheet with nonstick spray.
  • Pour cake mix into a medium bowl, add eggs and melted butter - mix till combined. I used a wooden spoon but you can use a hand mixer as well.
  • Roll the dough into 1 inch balls and roll each ball into the powdered sugar. Place onto cookie sheet and bake about 11 - 12 minutes. Cool 2 minutes on cookie sheet and then remove to wire cooling rack.
  • Note: the cookies will spread out while baking so need to flatten the dough balls.
