Red Velvet Crinkle Cookies

Cookies made from a boxed cake mix—one of my favorite kinds to make when I’m in a hurry and need a sweet fix!.. They only take about 5 minutes of your time, and they come out delicious and chewy!..  Just think,  you can use any flavor of cake mix in this recipe to make crinkle cookies;  ones that are particularly good are lemon, chocolate, and this one.   I chose the Red Velvet for now, because they look so festive.  I’m also considering using a white cake mix and tinting the batter a light green.  The two kinds together on a plate, red and green with white sugar coating, oooooh, so pretty!
