Easy Christmas Wreath Cookies

Servings 24 -30 cookies

Ingredients

  • Cookies:
  • 1 box Pillsbury Purely Simple White Cake Mix or the chocolate cake mix!
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 C. oil
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • Green Frosting:
  • 3/4 C. butter softened
  • 2-3 C. powdered sugar
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • green food dye
  • Fruit by the Foot the Target store brand is best because it's not as wide, and they don't come with designs cut into them
  • red candies mini M&M's, red hots, or sprinkles

Instructions

  1. 1. Preheat oven to 335 degrees and line pans with parchment paper.
  2. 2. Combine cake mix, eggs, oil and vanilla extract. The dough will be thick so you can either mix it by hand to get a workout or use a mixer.
  3. 3. Scoop out dough balls the size of walnuts and lightly flatten onto the pan. (Just a gentle pan will do to keep them from baking up too tall.)
  4. 4. Bake for 8-12 minutes.
  5. 5. Let cool.
  6. 6. Frosting: Beat butter and 2 cups powdered sugar. Add more powdered sugar until you reach your desired consistency. Add vanilla extract and green food dye.
  7. 7. Pipe frosting on in a circle to create your wreath (piping tip shown in photo).
  8. 8. Use your Fruit by the Foot to make bows and then place those on top of the cookie wreath. Finish off with red candies for your "berries."
