GIFT BASKET IDEAS

If you want to make cute gift baskets, here are a few of our favorite things to add!

🍴KEY INGREDIENTS

  • White Cake Mix
  • Cool Whip
  • Egg
  • Powdered Sugar
  • Green and Red Food Coloring
  • Vanilla Extract

SWAPS

You could easily swap out the cake mix for chocolate, leave out the food coloring and just make chocolate cookies. Any cake mix + Cool Whip + powdered sugar is pretty much the basic recipe.

🍽️HOW TO MAKE

This recipe is very simple but also very festive. The cookies look great on a table.

PREPARATIONS

You do want your Cool Whip to be soft, so set it out before you decide to make these cookies. That is really the only prep there is to this easy recipe.

COOKING STEPS

Step 1
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. In a small bowl add powdered sugar and set aside for later.

Step 2
 In a bowl, combine cake mix, cool whip, egg and vanilla. The dough will be sticky. Separate the dough in half and put in separate bowls. Add food coloring until it is the desired color. 

Step 3
Use a small cookie scoop or spoon to make balls of dough and roll in powdered sugar. Place on baking sheet, keeping cookies 2 inches apart, they will spread. 

Step 4
Cook for 12-15 minutes until the cookies are set, they will still be soft in the center. Let cool for about 4-5 minutes. Remove from the baking sheet and put on a plate or wire rack.

NOTES: I found if I let the dough sit for a bit or even chill it for 20-30 minutes, it becomes more manageable and not as sticky. Adds to the prep time but it may be worth it!

⭐TIP

The powdered sugar is optional, but it really gives the cookies the crinkle look and makes them more festive.

RECIPE VARIATIONS

You can use a strawberry cake mix, confetti, or any of them to make these cookies to your desired taste. We made this with a Christmas theme for the holidays but this is a super versatile recipe.

❓FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Can I use whipped cream instead of Cool Whip?

No, you can’t. Whipped Cream is made very differently, and it would not work in these cookies.

Do these cookies need to be refrigerated?

No, they don’t. You can display them on your table for the holidays!

Can you freeze these cookies?

Yes, you absolutely can freeze them and they will keep for a few months in the freezer.

STORING

These cookies are easy to store and they keep well. We displayed them in a glass cake container with or rolo pretzels for a nice look on our table during the holiday season.
