Red Velvet Crinkles

Really needing to go the market to restock on groceries, yet being in the mood to bake can pose a challenge. I was out of eggs so using a substitute, I was able to come up with something last night in spite of things.

1 box red velvet cake mix 
2 Tblsp flour
2 Tblsp oil
4 tsp. baking powder
2 tsp. water
1/2 c. oil
1 tsp. vanilla extract
Powdered sugar

Preheat oven to 350*.  In a large mixing bowl combine all ingredients, except for powdered sugar. Mix until all ingredients have been fully incorporated. Take a Tablespoon full of dough at a time & roll into a ball. Roll ball in powdered sugar and place on greased or lined cookie sheet. Using the back side of your fork tines, lightly press down atop each cookie. You don't want it to be flat but pressed just enough to make the ball semi circular (cookie) shaped.  Bake for 12-13 minutes. Let cookies cool before transferring to cookie plate or cookie jar.
