My Recipes // Donut Cookies (Just in Time for Valentine's Day!)

Every year, I bake Valentine's Day themed cookies or cupcakes and send them out to my 
family and friends with little love notes. It's been a favorite tradition of mine and this year 
was no exception. Whilst cruising Pinterest for inspiration, I came across a recipe for donut 
shaped cookies. Are you kidding me!? As if normal cookies aren't cute enough, they came 
up with DONUT SHAPED COOKIES! Radical.

So, last night I baked and frosted almost 50 cookies while drinking wine and listening to 
Billy Holiday. It was my own little version of therapy without the shrink. Seriously, I love 
laying out the ingredients, rolling the dough into perfect little balls and then baking and icing them 
into sweet, delicious perfection. Yes, I may have burnt my prized ham and bean soup while 
cooking the cookies, but it was worth it cause these things were GOOD!

1 Box Krusteak sugar cookie mix (yeah, I cheated. Sandra Semi-Homemade Cooking right hurr!)
I Cup Betty Crocker Whipped Strawberry Frosting
1/2 Cup Powdered Sugar
Sprinkles or sugar crystals to decorate 

Bake cookies according to package. Let cool completely. Stamp out the middle with a round object hollow object. I used the cap from the sprinkled bottle because… necessity is the mother of invention. A round cookie cutter would have worked better but oh well! Whip together frosting and powdered sugar with a spoon. Ladle icing into a piping bag or Ziploc and pipe onto cookies. Smooth frosting into desired shape with a spoon and to with toppings of your choice. Yeah, it's that easy.


  1. These look delicious! And I'm with you Semi-Homemade all the way!

  2. Hahaha fast and easy is sometimes the way to go :-) These "donuts" are so stinkin' cute!

  3. Baking and Billie sounds like my kind of night. Those cookies are adorable!

  4. Goodness, these are super adorable! At first I thought these were ACTUALLY donuts! Love how they all turned out, you should be so proud of yourself!
