My Blog Spark: Easter Pillsbury Ready Bake Giveaway~ 4/14




Momma Told Me: They'll be plenty of sugar, LATER.

For me, next to family, there's always been one thing synonymous with holidays; food. For children, specifically, sugar. You have fudge, gingerbread cookies, and candy canes at Christmas, over-sized cakes for birthdays, cards with lollies at Valentines, and literally a n entire day devoted to passing out candy (Halloween). Next to gifts, a wide variety of continual sugar is often what keeps most kids looking forward, through somewhat tedious family gatherings. Easter has never been an exception in our household. While those youngest still question the association with Easter's true origins, and an egg toting bunny rabbit, even the adults eyes light up to find marshmallow bunnies and rice crispy treats that Sunday.



Now that I find myself on the opposite end of the holiday festivities (running around planning and entertaining) it can often be hard to find time to continue the magic through all the prep! Sure, there are eggs to dye with the kiddos, but how do you keep the festivities going, and the children focused in between the coloring and the hunt? I'd love to throw in a new family tradition, but I simply don't have time to bake Grandma's famed oatmeal cookies from scratch! Thankfully, Pillsbury has whipped up the perfect solution with their no fuss, no prep, Easter Ready Bake Cookies. These Disney themed Easter sugar cookies come in packs of 24 pre-cut discs featuring either Minnie Mouse (girls) or Cars characters (Boys). Available in your grocer's refrigerated case, near other Pillsbury delights (such as Grands Biscuits) and Jello/Pudding, you can pick up a perfect package of 24 cookies for about $2.99 retail. Hurry on over here, right now, and score a special limited time coupon for $1.10 off your purchase of a single package!


I received a special sample package from Pillsbury and My Blog Spark, including metal spatula, ceramic cookie jar, branded oven mit, and VIP Ready Bake Cookie Coupon. I initially had trouble finding these special holiday print cookies at our local Vons. It turns out our location likes to keep seasonal, refrigerated, merchandise in a separate part of the refrigerated cases. If you don't see them with the Pillsbury biscuits and Jello/Pudding, look for stand alone cases at the end of the aisle, or towards the prepared lunches. Because these cookies are entirely ready-to-bake, we simply had to lightly grease a cookie sheet and place each dough disc about 2" apart. The pre-formed dough discs are no more than 1.5" in diameter, and about 1/2" thick when raw. In the center an adorable Minnie graphic can be seen.



After about 10minutes in the oven, at 375F, these cookies are ready to come out! I was surprised how they only about doubled in width, and how flat they were. Impressively, they did not dry out, or overcook, and remained soft to the bite for days after baking. It took us about 2 batches to bake all 24 cookies, and I especially loved how quickly they cooled, and how perfectly they were sized for tiny hands! These Pillsbury Easter Ready Bake cookies make the perfect addition to any Easter Sunday festivities with no prep or clean up!

What Daughter Says: Add a little extra fun to your Easter Sunday lineup, with Pillsbury Ready Bake Cookies. Mom will love how simple they are to make!
