Holiday Cake Cookies
This is a new and easy twist to sugar cookies. A cake mix makes these cookies a snap to make.
1/2 cup vegetable shortening
1/3 cup butter, softened
2 large egg yolks
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 (18.25-ounce) package yellow cake mix
Tinted sugar, any color
- Preheat oven to 350°F (175°C).
Cream together shortening, butter, egg yolks and vanilla in a large mixing bowl. Gradually blend in cake mix. Dough will be stiff.
- Chill 1hour; rolled out, cut into shapes, decorated with colored sugar and sprinkles and place on a baking sheet.
- Alternately, dough can be used immediately by rolling dough into 1-inch balls. Place on baking sheet and flatten with the bottom of a glass that has been dipped in colored sugar.
- Bake for 6 to 8 minutes.
Makes 18 cookies.
