Last night I went to my local running group’s Christmas party. It was super fun to catch up with everyone! We have all been kind of all over the place so it was fun to get together and see everyone before the year is up. I enjoyed catching up with these two awesome runner girls.
This morning I was up at about 6:30 for a 5 mile sunrise run with my girl Elyse. I don’t know what I would do sometimes without the accountability of my neighborhood running buddies. I think otherwise I would have been a lazy bones and would definitely have slept in after last night’s Christmas party. We ran to the tune of this gorgeous sunrise.
So today I have a fun…EASY recipe to share for all of you that love to make Christmas goodies. I am probably the laziest baker out there. I made these for my mom this past weekend and she really loved them.
Red Velvet Cool Whip Cookies
What you’ll need-
1 box of red velvet cake mix
1 container of cool whip (I used the light version)
1 c. flour (to help to shape the cookies)
Preheat oven to 350. Mix the cool whip into the cake mix (you could stop here and taste the batter before you put the egg in! It’s delicious) Beat the egg and mix it in until it’s all blended. The batter will be very gooey. Dip your hands in flour and form the batter into balls. Coat the balls in the powdered sugar and place on a cookie sheet sprayed with nonstick cooking spray. Bake in the oven for 10-15 minutes until they are really pretty…like this.
They are super chewy and delicious! Perfect for a cookie swap party. Enjoy!
Do you love to cook/bake- or are you a lazy baker like me? Anyone else a part of a running group (or have neighborhood running buddies)?

Those cookies look and sound great, might need to try them out! So what time is sunrise in your parts? Must be earlier than ours…
Um…I don’t know the exact time. I just know I’m out there when the sun is rising. 😉
I LOVE to bake (not from boxed mixes)! I don’t care that other’s prefer to use the box stuff, I just prefer to do things from scratch- it’s more fun for me!
I bet you can throw down in the kitchen gorgeous girl! Teach me how to make something from scratch!
Come to CA and we’ll have a baking day, followed by an eating everything day, followed by a fat day 😉
As long as we have a few RUN days somewhere in there I’m in!!
Haha I’m a lazy baker like you. It’s hard when the boxed mixes taste so good!
Oh gosh yes! I can’t make stuff like that unless I give it away…I don’t trust myself lol!
cool whip in cookies??? mind blown.
You would seriously love them!
yeeess, they look so festive too! Glad you have fun running buddies that keep you accountable=)
Man you have no idea! I really was not feeling that run this morning but I’m so glad now that I got out for some fresh air!
ugh- i wish i could run while the sun is rising – that sounds amazing. I get to work before the sun rises!
I know all about that teacher schedule…my mom teaches first grade too! You guys are always up early!!
I did a screen shot of your recipe. They look too good and I will be whipping up a batch during my break. Thanks 4 sharing!
You’re so welcome! Let me know how they turn out!!
I LOVE your scarf in that picture! You look gorgeous! And cool whip cookies are a stroke of genius! I love to cook and bake. Some days I make food network worthy things, others I’m trying to find anything that’ll only take a few minutes to make!
You are so incredibly sweet! I LOVE all of the recipes you post too – always giving me ideas!!
