If you’re patriotic and love cookies, then you’re sure to enjoy these Patriotic Cake Batter Cookies! These cookies are simple to make, tasty and colorful. A perfect combination, right? Wink-wink.
My husbands birthday is on July 4th, so the festivities always include red, white and blue (except when he turned 50)! Ironically, he’s Canadian, so it’s a running joke that his birthday is on a highly celebrated American holiday.
Even though he became a citizen several years ago, we still enjoy a chuckle every now and again about that. And I have to admit that I’m glad red, white and blue get a little more attention around patriotic holidays.
Anywho, if you’re hosting a July 4th barbecue or taking a dish to share — why not make whip up a batch of these cake batter cookies? They’re semi-homemade since you’ll be using a white cake mix. Add just a few other ingredients to the mix and dessert is served!
I would imagine that if the kids or grandkids are around, they’d love to help you pull these together. They’re hard to mess up! Enjoy!
