Hi everyone, I hope your holiday season is filled with so much joy, love and laughter. As wonderful as the holidays are, it can get crazy and busy so fast. With all the family around, holiday parties and all the shopping that has to get done, I start to forget things. So I thought I would share an incredibly easy cookie recipe that takes no time to whip up. I originally got this recipe from my Aunt, she would make these for me every Christmas as a sugar cookie with regular cake mix. I looked forward to these every year, not realizing how easy her recipe is.
I always keep a spare box of sugar free cake mix in the house for these types of situations. It has come in handy many times and everyone really enjoys eating them.
Here is the recipe:
- Sugar Free Cake Mix (Or regular cake mix)
- 2 Large Eggs
- 1/3 Cup – 1/2 Cup of Coconut Oil (Or oil of your choice)
- 1 tsp. vanilla (optional)
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
- In a large bowl, or an electric mixer, mix all ingredients together. The dough should be pretty thick and stick together.
- Drop cookies on to parchment paper on a baking sheet.
- Bake for 10 minutes.
The cookies will be soft and should be lightly browned on the bottom.
Another great option about these cookies is the many different options you have to create different types of cookies. The cookies I specifically created in this blog were snickerdoodles. I feel you can’t go wrong with a standard sugar cookie and add some spice. Here are a few ideas:
- Add 1 tsp. cinnamon
- Add 1 tsp. all spice
- Roll dough in Swerve and Cinnamon mixture
Sugar Cookie Chocolate Chip:
- Add 2 cups of chocolate chips
- Add 1 tsp. cinnamon
- Add 1 tsp. ginger
- Add 1/2 tsp. cloves
- Add 1 tsp. lemon extract
- Add 2 Tbsp. lemon zest
- Add 2 Tbsp. lemon juice
You can also frost the tops of the cookies, roll them in sprinkles, make them with any flavor cake mix or just enjoy them the way they are.
I hope you enjoy.
