Easter Cookie Recipe

Red Velvet Peeps in a Nest

I love Easter! The promise of spring, the daffodils and hyacinths blooming, the warm sun on my face, and Easter candy.  It was always so much fun for me to watch my kids faces as they tore into their Easter baskets. Even more fun was dying eggs and making my Easter Cookie Recipes. 


  • 1 box Duncan Hines Red Velvet Cake Mix
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/3 cup Smart Balance oil
  • 1 can of Duncan Hines Cream Cheese Frosting
  • 1 cup of Coconut Flakes

  1. Mix cake mix, eggs and oil together.
  2. Roll into 3″ balls and set 3″ apart on parchment paper on cookie sheet.
