Red White and Blue Cookies are sure to be a hit both in your kitchen and at your Memorial Day or 4th of July cookout!
Okay guys, normally I would make cupcakes for events like Memorial Day and 4th of July. You know, those events where you’re getting really patriotic and celebrating (or mourning) but I’m not gonna lie, these cookies came out of laziness. Pure and Simple. Problem is though, when you have a blog, people kind of expect you to at least attempt to make things look good and well, I hate to disappoint. It’s a blessing and a curse.
So yeah, these Red White and Blue Cookies came out of laziness. And you know what? They turned out great! Could I have made cool pinwheels or super fancy iced sugar cookies? Probably. But when you’ve worked all weekend (late nights too) and wake up at 10 for a BBQ that is supposed to start at noon, well… fancy flies out the window. SO! If you need a quick cookie recipe that makes a big impression without taking a ton of time, keep this in your arsenal. It makes the easiest softest cookies ever!
Red White and Blue Cookies
1 box white or vanilla cake mix
1 box instant vanilla pudding
Red, White and Blue M&Ms
Blue food coloring
1/2 c melted butter
Makes: 24 cookies
Cook time: 10-12 minutes
Preheat your oven to 375 and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Mix all of your ingredients together with 10 drops of blue food coloring, less if you’re using a gel color. Save your M&Ms for last.
Scoop and drop cookies onto cookie sheet 1 1/2 inch apart and bake for 10-12 minutes or until the edges are slightly browned.
Let them cool and share with your friends! You can totally let them think you spent an hour measuring out ingredients and stuff.
