This past Saturday was one of my favorite days of the year - Cookie Day! It's a day where my whole family gets together to #SpreadCheer & bake up a storm. We make everything from Oreo Balls to Reese Cup Trees, but the show stopper is always the massive table full of sugar cookie cutouts!
Every member of our family is asked to bring a bowl of pre-made, chilled sugar cookie dough to my mom's house, then we roll them all out & bake them together. To say that I'm not the best baker is a massive understatement, and to say that I'm short on time these days is as well. So, this year I fooled everyone & used Betty Crocker Sugar Cookie Mix!
I picked mine up at the Dollar General & was so pumped about how easy it was to throw together! There are two recipes on the bag - 1 for drop cookies - which is what I normally use - and 1 for cut outs - which is what I used on Saturday morning. I put my dough in a big red mixing bowl & nobody was any wiser! They rolled out & baked up just like all the other homemade versions, but took me no time at all to throw together. Trust me, if you're short on time, this is the way to go!
Ella was all about Cookie Day & had tons of fun getting messy in Grammy's kitchen. She has a super short attention span, but the girl loves sprinkles, so she was all about that part!
Our finished products were not only adorable, but also quite delicious! Stay tuned to see how we shared our efforts to #SpreadCheer this holiday season!
