Cookies Make Everything Better Blog Hop

Happy Thursday!  Welcome to the Cookies Make Everything Better Blog Hop...a celebration of everything COOKIE! December is cookie time in our house.  Nothing screams "IT'S THE HOLIDAYS" to me like the smell of freshly baked cookies in our home...and not just one kind of cookie...LOTS of them!

I made a "sweet" little layout using my Silhouette Cameo and mixing and matching a bunch of cut files.  The cute little bears came from the file, Latte Bears by Designs On Cloud 9 and were cut from Kraft paper.  I inked the edges of pretty much everything with coordinating colors of Distress Inks, and added a few highlights with a Sakura Gelly Roll pen.    I added one of our favorite cookie recipes too!  The recipe is below...SO YUMMY!

This is the Cherry Chip mix rolled in red sugar

Cake Mix Cookies

1 box cake mix, any flavor
½ an 8 oz tub of cool whip
1 egg

Mix all ingredients well.  Dough will be very stiff and sticky.  Roll into balls, any size you want.  Then roll the balls into your choice of powdered sugar, cinnamon sugar, nuts, sprinkles, etc.  Bake at 350 degrees for about 12 minutes.  If making peppermint kiss cookies, now is the time to press the peppermint kiss down onto the top of the cookie.  Cool completely.

Possible combos:
Lemon cake and powdered sugar
Spice cake and cinnamon sugar
Cherry chip cake and red granulated sugar
Milk chocolate cake and powdered sugar, topped with peppermint kisses.
Chocolate cake rolled in crushed candy canes
Chocolate cake and chocolate sprinkles
The possibilities are endless!

So in case you just stumbled upon this post, you can find the blog hop list below.  Your next stop is sweet Haidee.   Just wait til you see what she's created...sooo cute!!

Have fun on your journey of cookie inspiration and then have fun baking!  Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Scrapping! ~Amy E
