green grinch cookies.

I got the recipe for these cookies from The Tasty Kitchen right before Christmas, and they were an absolute hit! They're soft and cakey and really really delicious. The green color makes them really fun and festive too :)

I'm a huge fan of any kind of really cakey cookie, especially with milk, so this is definitely a recipe I'll be making over and over, probably all different colors for different occasions!
// 6 Tbsp. butter
// 1 cup powdered sugar
// 1 tsp. cornstarch
// 1 box yellow cake mix
// 2 eggs
// approx. 10-15 drops of green food dye

1. Mix the powdered sugar and cornstarch together in a shallow dish to coat the cookie dough in later.
2. Mix together the butter, cake mix, and eggs.
3. Stir in the green food dye after everything is combined.
4. Drop balls of the batter into the dish with powdered sugar and roll through before placing on the greased cookie sheet. Using two spoons for this part is recommended because the cookie dough is really sticky to roll with your fingers.
5. Bake for 8-10 minutes at 375 degrees. When the time's up they won't look finished because they're all puffy and gooey, but once they cool they'll shrivel up a little bit and set.
These cookies are perfect for any Christmas party - or for a quiet night in with friends! Enjoy them!
