4-Ingredient Orange Slice Cookies

This cookie recipe might blow your mind.  So, prepare yourself…

4-Ingredient Halloween Cookies

Aren’t you frightened?

There is one little disclaimer I need to make about the title on the picture above.  The batter actually is made with three ingredients, not four.  (Sorry, but I didn’t exactly LIE…)

3-Ingredient Cake Batter

The fourth ingredient is the garnish, which technically is an ingredient for these Halloween cookies, right?

Chopped Oranges Slices Candy

The sugar helps the little pieces not to stick to each other after chopping. (Oops, that possibly was another ingredient I forgot about.) After scooping your cookie dough onto the baking sheet, mash them to flatten, and you’re all set to start making spooky faces.

Spooky Face Cookies

Spooky faces…kooky faces.  Isn’t Halloween fun?  Fun for little kids, and fun for big kids, too.

Adults are sometimes called children of God, so technically we can be a kid even when we’re grown.  This adult child of God likes cookies – kooky and spooky!

Pan of Halloween Cookies

Bake in 350° oven for 10-12 minutes, until lightly browned.

Cookies Baked!

You will be amazed that four ingredients can taste so delicious.

Spunky Daughter (the child that smells food and gets full) came through the kitchen and grabbed a handful and commented about her addiction to these “drug cookies”.

Wait a minute!  I don’t see a crack in them anywhere!

Hee.  Hee.  Hee.

I’d like to add that I make these cookies throughout the year and mix the orange slice chunks into the batter – saves time and just as delicious.

Here’s the recipe so you can print it.

      Yes, the original recipe is with chocolate chips and has a few different ingredients in it. I’ll share that someday, but this French Vanilla cake mix recipe is good with choc. chips, too. Enjoy!

    This is a great and simple idea. I’m wondering it gluten free mix would work as a way for those of us not able to eat regular “cookies” to enjoy!
