Cool Whip Cookies HERO

Every year at Christmas time, we love spending a day or two baking up all sorts of different cookies! My mom used to bake cookies every year and I enjoy carrying on the tradition. This year give these fun Cool Whip cookies a try. You only need a handful of ingredients and these colorful cookies will dress up any dessert table or cookie tray!

The red and green colors totally remind me of the Grinch, too! (Have you checked out our Grinch Dunkaroo Dip yet?)

These Christmas Cool Whip cookies are light and sweet and the process is enough for kids to help out too.
