Crinkle Cookies


Since this is my first recipe, I thought I’d start with Daniel’s favorite dessert that I make. Their called crinkle cookies and for good reason you will see with the pictures provided they look crinkled. Don’t let that deter you! They are super easy to make and taste great. I make these year round and for added fun I change the food coloring I use to correspond with the holiday or time of the year.

These are perfect for pot lucks, birthdays, holidays, or just a fun weekend with the family. You name it and these can be made for that event. I’ve never had anyone be disappointed when I bring them and in fact people ask me to make them often.

My Crinkle Cookies are sweet, light, and fluffy. I hope you love them as much as my family does!

Here is a picture of the Easter cookies I made for this years family egg hunt. They were a big hit!


The Christmas version I make during the holiday. I just add a little red and green food dye.
