Before you get started you will want to decide on the number of Kool-Aid flavors you plan on using. This recipe calls for two packets of mix and it makes 36-40 cookies.
If you would like to make all one flavor cookies then simply use two of the same packets. I like to divide the dough in half then use two different flavors; however, it would be just as easy to divide the dough into fourths and use half of a packet of four different Kool-Aid flavors.

Additional Ideas & Tips for Kool-Aid Cookies
- Frost your colorful treats with simple white vanilla frosting or get creative and create flavor combinations like lemon frosting on raspberry Kool-Aid cookies.
- Add sprinkles! Mix candy sprinkles into the batter or roll the dough into one inch balls then slightly press them flat and top with colorful sprinkles.
- Use gallon size Ziploc bags to mix the Kool-Aid into the dough rather than mixing bowls; simple separate the dough into bags, add in the dry mix and kneed the bag with your hands to combine the Kool-Aid mix and dough together.
- Create double flavor cookies by creating two small dough ball of different flavors then press them the dough together before placing it on the pan and baking.
- Fold white or milk chocolate chips into the dough before baking for an extra sweet bite.
Kool-Aid Cookies Recipe
- Preheat the oven to 325* degrees then prepare a cookie sheet with a silicone baking mat and set it aside.
- Next add the eggs, vanilla, baking soda and salt then continue to mix until the creamed mixture is well combine.
- Add 1 cup of flour to the mixture and use a large mixing spoon to mix the flour into the batter. After the first cup of flour is mixed in follow the same steps for the additional 2 cups. Adding the flour one cup at a time makes it much easier to mix.
- Next divide the dough in half. Place the dough in separate bowls then mix one packet of Kool-Aid into each bowl. (I recommend using glass bowls or Ziploc bags.) Continue to mix the dough until the Kool-Aid mix is well combined.
- Use a cookie scoop to drop rounded drops of dough onto the prepared cookie sheet then bake for 10 minutes or until the edges of the cookies start to turn golden.
- After removing the cookie sheet from the oven allow the cookies to rest on the hot pan for two minutes before transferring them to a cooling rack.
- Store in an airtight container. Enjoy!
