Do you love celebrating Memorial Day or 4th of July? I sure do. This is my favorite time of year because I love love love the Red, White & Blue. I decided that this year I would make these SUPER FUN Patriotic Cake Mix Cookies to help us celebrate BIG!
I love this season more than any other. From the time we wrap up Easter I’m practically giddy looking forward to Memorial Day. I put out all my red, white & blue decor & it stays up all through June & the July 4th weekend. Making fun patriotic decor & recipes to help us celebrate just makes me so HAPPY!

These cake mix cookies are incredibly simple to make. Just 4 ingredients & I don’t even have to use my mixer. I just add the first 3 ingredients to my large bowl & mix with a firm spatula. Then once I have my dough I separate it into 3 equal parts. I leave one as is for the “white” & then I fold in some food color to the others. Then it is as simple as scoop & bake. No chill time required.
Some common questions I get about these cookies…*What type of food color do you use? I like this gel variety because I find that the pigment is more dense & that makes it easier for me to reach the desired color while using less product. *Do I need to line the baking sheet? YES! Please line the baking sheet with either a non-stick baking mat or just a simple sheet of parchment paper will do. *What size cookie scoop do you use? I really like this medium scoop from Good Cook. *Can I use a different flavor of cake mix? YES – that is a great idea! Change it up & get creative. I usually use THIS cake mix for this particular recipe.
