The perfect cookie for your Christmas movie night

These Grinch Cookies are dyed green with red and green M&Ms.

Christmas time is my favorite time of the year. My kids love a good movie night and themed snacks are always a plus. These Grinch Cookies are our favorite!

How to make Grinch Cookies:


Step one: Use a small mixing bowl whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt. Then set aside for later.

Step two: In a separate larger mixing bowl or in your stand mixer cream together butter and cream cheese until creamy.

Step three: Add in sugar and continue to mix until light and fluffy. Next, add in your egg along with your almond and vanilla extract. Last mix in your green dye. Add more as needed to get the color you want.

Step four: Slowly add your dry ingredients into your mixer with your wet ingredients until well combined. Cover and chill for 1 hour or overnight.

Step five: Now Preheat oven to 350 degrees and prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Step six: Roll dough into balls (about 2 tablespoons per cookie) and place it on your prepared baking sheet. Place red M&Ms on top of your cookies.

Step seven: Bake for 14-15 minutes then allow cooling on the pan for 5 minutes before allowing them to cool completely on a rack.
