Red Velvet Crinkle Cookies

We've had a fun filled weekend of activities at our house.  With Ryan gone hunting for the weekend, the kids and I played.  We went to the movie, played with cousins (and Grandma), made a gingerbread house...

Yes...its a store bought kit.  We were focusing on quality time here, not the quality of the gingerbread.  I did my good mother deed by not allowing the kids to eat any of the candy or cookies (who knows how long those had been in there!!)

We watched more movies, went to church and out for lunch, made cookies...

I lied...I made the cookies myself.  No kiddos in the room.  I needed to be alone in my kitchen...just me and my oven and my mixing bowls.  Ever had one of those days??  And then I ate a bunch of the cookies and made by kids have bananas for their snack.  That may veto my good mom deed from earlier.  But like my dad used to say, "Do as I say, not as I do."

And now the kids are wrestling.  Hmm...pretty sure this will end up with someone in tears yelling, "It's all your fault!"

These cookies are soft and chewy.  Chocolaty and sweet.  Very much semi-homamde.  A great cookie to have in your repertoire.

   adapted from Cookin' Cowgirl

1 box devils food cake mix
2 eggs
6 Tbsp butter, melted
1/2 bottle red food coloring
1 cup powdered sugar

Preheat oven to 375.  Melt the butter and set aside to cool.

In large mixing bowl, combine cake mix, eggs, butter, and food coloring.  Mix well.  

Drop by teaspoon (I used the smallest Pampered Chef cookie scoop) into the powdered sugar.  Roll around to coat (and make into a ball).  Shake off excess powdered sugar and place on cookie sheet.  

Bake for 9 minutes.  Allow to cool on cookie sheet for 1 minute and then move to cooling rack to cool completely.  Enjoy!

makes about 3 dozen cookies

I'm hoping to get a lot more Christmas baking done, so hopefully I'll have a lot more to share with you soon.
