The easiest cookies ever? Maybe. The tastiest cookies ever? Definitely. A new holiday cookie favorite? You better believe it.
You know and I know that we secretly turn somersaults when we come across a quick-and-easy holiday recipe. The season gets so insane, it's an absolute relief to come across a proper shortcut. And this cookie, it's a proper shortcut. Supremely simple. Yay hoo.
Threeeee ingredients to make these cookies. That's it!
Pop Betty Crocker sugar cookie mix, cream cheese, and chopped pecans in a bowl. Use a fork to mix them together.
A soft dough will form. You may have to use your hands to bring it all together.
Break that dough into two pieces and roll each piece into a log. Slice with a sharp knife and rework the dough as needed to create nice, rounded cookies. Place on a baking sheet and bake until light golden brown.
You can stop here if you want, but two more basic ingredients and one more step, and you'll have chocolate-drizzled, sea-salt sprinkled cookies happening in your kitchen in five minutes flat.
You'll have enough time to dip these babies in a glass of milk and wait for Santa to stop by.
