I'm so excited about your contest since I would love love love to own a KitchenAid mixer! Because I don't I tend to stick to easy-to-make cookies that need just a bowl and wooden spoon.
These easy Funfetti Christmas cookies are a great example. My kids love to help make them as much as they enjoy eating them and sharing them with their friends. There's something about Funfetti cake mixes that make kids of all ages smile.
I love the way the festive green frosting and sprinkles brighten up a cookie plate.
If you'e never tried making cookies with a cake mix, give it a whirl. They taste great and are super quick and easy, which can be important when the craziness of the holidays rolls around. All you need is a funfetti cake mix, frosting, oil and eggs so they're economical too.
Cookies don't have to be complicated to be delicious. Sometimes the best recipes are the easiest.
I hope you'll bake up a batch with your kids and grandkids. You'll be creating fun memories that will last a lifetime.
