BANG - POW - ZOOM Burst of Flavor CRINKLE COOKIES - 52 Cookie Recipes

Pin It Now!

I call these my BANG - POW - ZOOM Burst of Flavor Crinkle Cookies for a good reason...

These have a tremendous amount of flavor that bursts in your mouth.

Deceptively flavorful as they resemble the Crinkle Cake Cookies that have been floating around the internet (Often called "How the Grinch Stole Christmas Cookies").  And indeed they have the exact EASY EASY EASY recipe (Store bought cake mix, mixed with egg and butter, drop in powdered sugar mixed with Corn Starch and bake).  BUT the difference here is the flavoring and coloring ingredient.  Just as simple... Add a box of Jell-o.

Red raspberry for the red crinkle and Lime for the Green.

No need to add food coloring, no need for special flavoring drops and no more boring average tasting cookies.  these BURST with an almost neon color (pretty for the holidays) with an equal BURST of flavor that makes these shine.

If you loved the old crinkle cookie recipe because of it's ease, You will go nuts for this BANG - POW - ZOOM Burst of Flavor Crinkle Cookies recipe.  A worthy addition to anyone's Christmas box of cookies!
