Kool-Aid Cookies are a fun, flavorful drop cookie that can be ready in just twenty minutes! Try this under 30-minute dessert recipe that both kids and adults will love!


Units Scale
  • 1 2/3 cups Sugar
  • 1 1/4 cups butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 3 cups of flour
  • Kool-Aid in your choice of flavor(s)


  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.
  2. In a mixer cream together butter and sugar.
  3. Add eggs and mix well.
  4. Add salt and baking soda.
  5. Add flour to butter mixture 1/2 cup at a time and mix well.
  6. If you would like more than flavor of cookies divide your dough into separate bowls now.
  7. I divided my dough into four equal portions and used one half packet of Kool-Aid per portion. If you are making only two colors you will use one packet of Kool-Aid per half, if you only want one color use two packets for the entire recipe.
  8. Mix Kool-Aid into dough until well blended and color is even.
  9. Drop by rounded spoonfuls onto greased cookie sheet and bake 10-12 minutes.
  10. Let cool one minute before removing from pan.


  • Don't be afraid to experiment with different flavors and colors!
  • Do not mix in plastic bowls or with plastic utensils as the Kool Aid may stain.
