Even Santa Can't Resist These Easy 4-Ingredient Christmas Cookies

If you thrive while baking complicated Christmas cookies, you might not find this recipe challenging enough for you. We also enjoy making impressive cookies for the holidays, but we can be swayed into making an easier version, too. TikTok content creator @morganthepielady shares her easy 4-ingredient cookie recipe with us, and they look so merry and bright!

You can make so many easy versions of this cookie, and your holiday platter will look amazing!

These cookies look so darn good! And so very festive, surrounded by all of those sprinkles. In the recipe she shows us, she uses 2 beaten eggs with 1/3 cup of oil, and a yellow cake mix. Once those 3 ingredients are combined, she folds in the chocolate chips. They are rolled into balls, and then into holiday sprinkles, if you’d like. They emerge from the oven looking fabulous and ever so jolly! 

We think we might love a chocolate cake mix with salted caramel chips. (Or a butter cookie with butterscotch chips.) A peanut butter cookie with both white and chocolate chips might also be in our future. The best part about this recipe is that it can be made for more than just the holidays! You’ll have so many great options to choose from, you’ll never get bored with this idea.

The audience was excited about trying this recipe and had some great ideas. Viewer @missyfinnell commented, “white cake mix with crushed red and green peppermint candy canes with a few mini chocolate chips." That’s a wonderful winter cookie idea! Viewer @user9626307996512 notes, "Hmmm, I’m thinking lemon cake mix with some powdered sugar lightly on top!!! Thanks for sharing.” That sounds very refreshing. Viewer @sjb added, “Use strawberry cake mix with white chocolate chips.” We love this idea too!

We can't wait to make these darling cookies. The only problem we anticipate is deciding which version to try first!
