Shortcut Red Velvet Crinkle Cookies

Valentine’s Day is a couple days away so obivously I had to start celebrating early with a nice sweet treat. I’ve been a fan of red velvet for a few years now. I have yet to make anything red velvet from scratch, but hopefully that’ll change once my birthday rolls around in August. For now, I’m using a shortcut in the kitchen by using a box of red velvet cake mix. It’s not just for making a cake, you can make cookies from the mix as well. The recipe is super easy and takes little time to mix together so heat up the oven and make these for your loved ones. If you want, make some cream cheese frosting and you’ll have sandwich cookies. 

Have a wonderful day!

1 box of red velvet cake mix
2 Tbsp all-purpose flour
2 large eggs
1/2 cup canola oil
1 tsp vanilla extract
powdered sugar, for rolling the cookies


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line large baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone mats.

2. In a large bowl, combine cake mix and flour. Whisk until clumps disappear. 

3. Stir in the eggs, oil and vanilla. Mix until smooth. 

4. Take about 1 tablespoon of cookie dough and form into a ball. Roll the ball in powdered sugar until fully coated. 

5. Place cookie dough balls on prepared baking sheets. 

6. Bake for 10 minutes, or until edges are set and cookies begin to crack. Let cookies cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes before moving to wire rack to cool completely.
