As you can tell, I am inspired by the Grinch Who Stole Christmas this year and plan to give out these cookies in addition to my Grinch Cookies that I made last time.
To avoid food coloring dyed hands I used latex gloves when mixing the food coloring for deep color you need to add TONS of food coloring. You can easily see that mine look more pink than red. Also, this did not yield 4 dozen. I barely ended up with 3. They also took about 4 extra minutes to bake, maybe I cut them too wide.
After my second batch I discovered that if you chill the dough for an hour they stay round when cut.
Today my 3.5 year old son and I are making delicious Grinch cookies for Christmas gifts this year. They’re pretty easy and yummy too. I have got love Pinterest for the idea of my tin.
Many people wondered how many it can yield, I used a tablespoon size and it produces 50 cookies when doubled. Make sure you coat your hands in the cornstarch/powdered sugar mixture before handling dough to avoid it sticking when you roll them into balls.
