Shamrock Drop Cookies Recipe

This recipe is one of my favorite go to easy cookie recipes and it can be adapted so many ways!  It is just a yellow cake mix, oil, eggs, powedered sugar with some food coloring.  You could just change out the colors and have these for any holiday really!  I think pink and purple would be fun for Easter and Red would work for both Christmas and Valentines Day…so many options!  You can also use other flavors of cake mixes, of course if you are planning on using food coloring you would want to stay away from chocolate.


These cookies get the crinkled affect from rolling them in powedered sugar before baking them.  They are a very pretty cookie and always look nice on a cookie tray.  They are great for parties, pot lucks and cookie exchanges!
