Fast & Delicious Dreamsicle Cookies
If you're having a cookie craving, you can whip these up and be eating them in about 20 minutes or less! They are easy enough for kids to help with too. Best of all, you can make them in any flavor that cake mixes come in, not just the Dreamsicle flavor I featured here! They're perfect for add-ins like chocolate chips, coconut, candies, and so on. You can frost them with your favorite icing, or not!
This dough would keep well refrigerated or frozen. Just roll the dough into balls, freeze on a cookie sheet, then remove for storage to a freezer container. So when those unexpected holiday guests drop by, you can have freshly baked cookies in minutes!

There is nothing that bakes cookies more evenly than silicone! Once I went silicone, I've never baked cookies any other way! Just sit this mat on top of any cookie sheet. They're even dishwasher safe!
I received this last Christmas as a gift and LOVE it!! No more broken cookies for me!
What a pretty way to serve the cookies to your holiday guests!
