Momma Told Me: It's the most wonderful time of the year.
We have been making cookies every week here in our household- As a young girl Momma would often gift handmade and homemade gifts during the holidays. Even when our family was having a particularly tight budget-wise year, we could always afford to #SpreadCheer with some simple twists on classic favorites, like 'Christmas Crack' sweet and salty bark, or even simply sugar cookies. Momma would handle the heavy lifting (baking) and I was always in charge or decorating the containers, cards, or gift tags to make them a little more personal.
cookie mixes. Available in ready to bake, just add egg, water, and oil/butter, varieties these 1lb 1.75oz bags are the perfect tool to bring the holiday spirit into your kitchen, without all the mess and fuss of measurements.
Betty Crocker's Sugar Cookie mix, provide a nice, even baked, delicious sugar cookie base that is perfect for holiday decorating. My tip to you is to use a deviled egg tray to hold various shapes and colors of sprinkles and cookie decorations so small hands can have full creativity over their cookie designs. Egg Keepers such as the one above will also cut down on some of the mess of toppled sprinkle containers from excited arms and hands.
