One of my favorite holiday traditions is baking cookies to give as gifts to my mailman, hairdresser, teachers, office staff as well as to friends and family.
These 5 Ingredient Christmas cookies are my tradition – they are so moist and tender. You make them with a cake mix. They are easy to make and you can do so many variations. My kids and I have been making them for years.
Let’s get baking!
5 Ingredient Christmas Cookies
1 box (15.25 oz) white cake mix
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 teaspoon vanilla
2/3 cup sprinkles
Ziploc bags or piping bags
Mix cake mix, oil, eggs, and vanilla together in a bowl.
The dough will be stiff but continue to mix until well blended. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
Preheat oven to 350 and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Shape dough into tablespoon-size dough balls, I use a 1 tablespoon portion scoop and dip into sprinkles. Use a spoon to toss the dough in the sprinkles and coat all sides.
Place dough onto the prepared baking sheet, 2″ apart. Bake 9-11 minutes or until centers are set. Let cool completely.
Place 1/2 cup white chocolate or candy melts into a microwave-safe container and microwave according to package directions.
Place melted chocolate into a baggie, snip the corner and pipe white trees onto half of the cookies. Refrigerate for 15 minutes or until chocolate is firm.
Makes 3 dozen.
