One of my favorite parts of the holiday season has always been baking with my mom. Now that I am a mother, I love that the kids are old enough to help make cookies with me, and we got started on the cookie-fun over the weekend using a few of my favorite mixes from Betty Crocker.
First up were these easy-to-make chocolate chip Christmas cookies. Aren’t they cute? I got the recipe on Betty Crocker’s Kids Cookie Corner.
Betty Crocker’s Chocolate Chip Cookies are yummy on their own, but we dipped them in some melted chocolate and then I let the kids add the holiday sprinkles of their choice. Here is a fun video with more information about these cookies.
We ended up with some really cute and festive Christmas cookies and the kids were really proud of their contributions to the finished products.
That’s really what I love most about Betty Crocker cookies. I get to focus on that time with the children instead of trying to follow a really complicated recipe. These moments that we share with our families during the holidays are the ones that we’ll look back on and treasure for a lifetime!
We also made some sugar cookies and Kara loved pressing out the shapes. The sugar cookies turned out absolutely perfect as well, I’ll have to share some photos of those soon! Yum!
