- 1/3 C vegetable oil
- 2 large eggs
- Red Gel Food Coloring
- Leaf Green Gel food coloring
- 1 container of white sanding sugar
How to make Grinch Cookies:
- Preheat oven at 350º F.
- Using a standing mixer, combine cake mix, oil and eggs until combined.
- Divide the batter into two separate bowls. (I use a large bowl for each color)
- Mix red food coloring into one bowl
- Mix green food coloring into the second bowl
- Take about 2 tbsp of red color of dough and 1 tbsp of the green dough and form into small sized balls.
- Pour the sanding sugar into a bowl.
- Roll cookie dough into the white sanding sugar.
- Place cookie dough balls about 2 inches apart on a parchment paper lined baking sheet.
- Lightly push each cookie dough ball down so that it becomes a thick but flat disk on cookie sheets.
- Bake for 7 to 8 minutes. ( Or 8-10 minutes depending on your oven)
- Allow sugar cookie to completely cool completely on wax paper before enjoying!
It is optional but you can add small red hearts to the cookies if you like. Also, chilling the dough is helpful if you find the dough is too soft.
