Look no further because these Christmas cookies are quick, easy, and delicious.
My friend Stephanie brought these over one year and we all loved them. When I ask her for the recipe I couldn’t believe how easy they were to make. I love cake box recipes because they are always easy recipes to make.
Rudolph’s Nose Christmas Cookies
1 box (18.25 oz) Devil’s food cake mix
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup butter or margarine, melted
Vanilla frosting (about 1/2 tub per batch)
Maraschino cherries (no stems)
Mix first four ingredients into a stiff dough. (Dough dries quickly and then is hard to roll–add a little oil to help with the dry-out factor, if needed.
Roll the dough into 1-inch balls. Press an indentation into a ball (with the round end of a wooden spoon or something like that).
Place 2 inches apart on a greased baking sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-11 minutes. If dough is puffed, use the end of a wooden spoon to recreate indentation.
Cool for one minute. Remove from pan and continue to cool. Spread frosting into the indention (or apply with star-tipped pastry bag). Top with a cherry.
