A first for me, all thanks to Betty Crocker and Safeway

I remember making cookies with my mom one Christmas.  Maybe two. 

It wasn’t a big family tradition in our home.  I know my Nana made them every year.  I always looked forward to visiting her (during ANY holiday) and enjoying her peanut butter cookies!

In all the years that I have been on my own I don’t think I have ever made cookies for Christmas.  I’m more of the fudge lady in my house.  Thanks to Betty Crocker and Safeway I was given the inspiration to leave Santa a real treat!

They sent me an awesome prize pack that included a $25 Giftcard to Safeway , a pack of Glad Ware Containers (for sharing the yummy goodness!) and a Betty Crocker Cookie Pouch!

I ventured over to the Bake Sweet Memories website and found a sweet recipe for Peanut Butter Chocolate cookies! While I was there I played the Sweet Memories Game.  It’s instant and can win you great Betty Crocker products. Their site is so much fun and great videos and party tips to help you host a great cookies exchange party! It’s too late for a Christmas cookie exchange but Valentine’s Day is right around the corner!

Lucky for me my in laws took the big girls out to a movie on Christmas Eve and I was left home alone with hubby and lil Peanut to make cookies!!  (No extra fingers in the dough)

It was so quick and easy!  In less than 40 minutes I had three different cookie doughs made and in the refrigerator for chilling.

    Best cookie making tip I have is to USE fresh and good ingredients. Old stuff is for the trash — not to make delicious cookies.

    My favorite cookie making tip… i like letting the kids help. It makes a horrible mess and the cookies look… well, you know. But we have so much fun doing it. I try to have them help most every time i bake, because i have such good memories doing it as a child. But sometimes, it’s just too much.

    I like this tip- Ways to dress up your cookies:
    * – Cut bars into bite-size squares rather than the regular size.
    * – Place mini-size bars in mini-size cupcake liners.
    * – Individually wrap cookies baked on sticks, and tie with ribbons.

    My best cookie making tip is to get kids involved. Let them help with mixing ingredients, decorating or even just array cookies on the plate. It makes fun time for the family.

    my best tip is to place the oven rack on the second level from the top–it keeps the cookies from burning and they are more soft & chewy 🙂

    My tip is to use a spoon so you can get the same amount of dough each time so your cookies look great and the same size at the end of the baking time.

    My favorite trick is to use a number of easy recipes, like 7-layer bars and other recipes that aren’t very complex and the kids can help with …

    Every year for Valentine’s Day, I make PJ sugar cookies, the soft kind. I split the batch in half, and color each half a different color. Roll the dough out thin, cut with heart cookie cutters,and layer 3 hearts on top of each other, alternating colors. Very pretty!

    My best cookie-making tip is to follow the recipe to a T! And to use almond flavoring for icing….it’s so good!
