Every year as the 4th of July draws near, I get big plans to make ALL the red, white and blue things-party decorations, fun foods, everything to make our holiday so festive. And inevitably I never have time to do all of the cute patriotic things that we could do for America’s birthday.
That’s why I love this 4th of July cookies recipe-it’s SO simple to make! All you need is a cake mix and a handful of ingredients and you can whip these up in under 30 minutes. And not only do they look cute, they taste AMAZING!

4th of July Cookies Recipe:
4th of July Cookies
- 1 white cake mix
- 1 stick butter (1/2 C) softened
- 1 egg
- red, white, and blue sprinkles
- food coloring for frosting
- Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
- Combine your cake mix, butter, and egg and mix till it forms a ball of dough.
- Add your sprinkles and mix them in.
- Roll small balls (about 1 inch) onto a cookie sheet.
- Bake for about 8-10 minutes. Gently press them down when they come out of the oven so that they are pretty flat.
- While they cool, grab your frosting and divide it into 3 bowls. Color one red, one blue and leave one white.
- Pipe some frosting onto cookies (we use a Ziploc bag with frosting in it and just snip off one corner, then squeeze).
- Top with a second cookie and you're all set!
These cookies will be so much fun to serve on the 4th of July or another American holiday you want to celebrate!
