Here is a great Christmas cookie which bakes up quick and easy. This is a newer cookie to my holiday line up, one which I created only recently. The best part, you start with cake mix!
Full time: 1 hour (includes multi batch baking/cooling)
Makes 36 cookies approximately
You will need:
1 box white cake mix
1 cup chopped Andes candies
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/2 tsp peppermint extract
6 drops green food coloring
Let us begin:
Preheat oven to 350'.
In a large bowl combine cake mix, oil, and egg.
Add in food coloring, you do not want it to mix in all the way, let a tiny bit of white still show.
Add in Andes pieces.
Scoop out 1 tsp size pieces and roll into a ball.
Place on an ungreased baking sheet 2" apart.
Bake full tray, 8-10 minutes or until edge begins to golden.
Remove from oven and let cool on tray 5-8 minutes, move to cutting board or cooling rack to finish cooling.
