Exclusive Cookie of the Month: The Grinch! Cookie

Yield: 12 cookies (2 oz. each)

1 stick butter, unsalted, softened

1 Tablespoon Canola oil

2 eggs

1 box Vanilla cake mix

1/2 cup Powdered Sugar

Green food coloring

Heart sprinkles (We use Wilton)




  1. Preheat oven to 350° F. 

  2. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream butter, oil and eggs together for about 3 minutes. It will not be completely smooth.  

  3. Add the cake mix. Continue to mix. The dough will become very thick.  

  4. Stir in green food coloring - we used about 15-18 drops to get the Grinch green.

  5. Scoop small balls of the dough and roll in powdered sugar right before placing on a baking sheet (cover baking sheet with parchment paper or silicone mat).

  6. Bake for 5-6 minutes. Open the oven to turn the pan and place heart sprinkle on cookies.

  7. Bake for an additional 5 minutes. The cookies should puff up.

  8. Cool on the cookie sheet for 15-20 minutes.

  9. Enjoy!
