The holidays are all about baking and now that Kenzie is a wee bit older, she can help out with making some of the treats. Betty Crocker makes it really easy with their mixes and frostings. The Betty Crocker™ Holiday Recipe Booklet 2014 is chock full of decorating ideas
This is the first year we are actually in Christmas cookie baking mode. Kids love anything on a stick so the Christmas Tree Cookie Pops from the Betty Crocker™ Holiday Recipe Booklet 2014 was up first. The Betty Crocker Sugar Cookie Mix makes baking beyond quick and easy. With just a few additions like cookie cutters, sprinkles and lollipop sticks, Kenzie was ready to get her bake on.
Kenzie enjoyed mixing the dough, rolling it out and cutting out the shapes. We colored the vanilla frosting with gel and she learned how to spread it over the cookie with a plastic knife. The sugar sprinkles were the best part of decorating.
This was the first time actually making cutout cookies with the Betty Crocker cookie mix and I was surprised at how delicious and chewy these were. They were in the oven for 10 minutes and cooled for about 30 minutes. Perfect and will definitely be making more to share!
