Grinch Cookies

My heart had definitely been feeling two sizes too small this December.   I ran across these Grinch Cookies, and thought they perfectly summed up my mood.  The recipe is super simple and fast to come together. 

Did my heart grow three sizes?  No, but I did find myself smiling and having fun.   Thanks so much to Sue for sending me the little red candy hearts and to Katrina for the recipe  :)  Wishing everyone a very Merry Christmas!

                              Grinch Cookies

  Amount  Measure       Ingredient -- Preparation Method
--------  ------------  --------------------------------
  1                box  french vanilla cake mix (I used 15.25oz box)
     1/2           cup  vegetable oil
  2                     eggs
                        green food coloring -- 4 drops
                        Confectioners (powdered) sugar for dusting
                        Sprinkles or candies -- large heart-shaped

Heat oven to 350°.  

Mix together cake mix, food coloring, oil and eggs.    Place dough in the fridge to chill, about 15 minutes.    Drop by tablespoons into powdered sugar ( I use this small scoop ), roll to coat.   Press 1 heart into the top of each cookie.  Place on parchment lined cookie sheets.   Bake for 8 minutes,  you want them just set.   Let cool on the pan for 2 minutes.   Move to a wire rack to cool completely.
