Expert Tips for Making Cake Mix Christmas Cookies

  • Cookie Cutter: An easy way to make baking Christmas cookies with the kids (or adults) more fun is to use holiday themed cookie cutters to shape your dough, or batter, into things like Christmas trees or Angels.
  • Don’t Forget a Bow: Some presents aren’t wrapped until they have a bow on top, and some cookies aren’t done until they have toppings! You can add chocolate chips, sprinkles, M&Ms, white chocolate chips, candy cane pieces and many more festive toppings to make your Christmas cookies your own (even if the recipe doesn’t call for it).
  • Christmas Cookie Sandwich?: Yes, a cookie/icing sandwich. Many Christmas Cookies come with delicious thick icing on top. If you’re icing like this, then simply flip the cookie over and ice the bottom, then place another cookie face up on top. Voila, a delectable creative Christmas cookie on another level.
  • Add a Pop of Color: Even if you’re baking with white, yellow or vanilla boxed cake mix, you can add a pop of Christmas color by simply adding some food coloring to make your creations stand out on the plate like lights on the tree.
