Making Christmas Cookies

I bake cookies k4328807 to mail to out-of-town relatives and give to some of my neighbors every Christmas

k7904318

I do easy recipes… and ones I feel will keep during the mailing process

Some basics I want to share …

For most of the cookies I made I used cake mixes…

Recipe: k10015436

1- box cake mix (your choice of flavor)

2- eggs

1/2 cup oil or… 1- stick of margarine or… 1- stick of butter…

(they all work well… but, I think I prefer the margarine)

Mix by hand…

Add whatever other ingredients sound good to you…
