The holiday season is for giving back, spreading happiness and some cheer! 7 years ago I baked a batch of cookies for our local Firefighters who work the Thanksgiving holiday and dedicate their lives protecting us, our friends and our homes throughout the year. We continued the tradition this year but with a big change, the girls baked the cookies without my help! It was kind of a mini bake-off between the three of them, I supervised of course and answered questions, but I never had to cracked a single egg (Think it was a mini Christmas miracle). Betty Crocker'seasy to bake mixes are simple enough for the kiddos to handle but yummy enough for anyone to enjoy!
The hardest part was deciding which cookie mixes to choose. The girls and I headed to our local Walmart to pick out their 3 favorites, sugar cookie, chocolate chip and peanut butter, there were so many to choose from, deciding on just 3 was the hardest part of this.
The biggest complaint about baking is usually prep and clean-up and usually when we get done our kitchen looks like a tornado came through, but not this time. Betty's cookie mix packets had easy to read instructions and reduce the kitchen mess to under 10 minutes.
From simple sugar cookies to a gingerbread masterpiece, Betty Crocker makes it easy to celebrate your favorite people. Give back to those that mean the world to you this holiday season by surprising them with fresh-baked goodness made straight from the heart. They have a wonderful variety of cookies, Betty's Maple Bacon is next up on our grocery list.
After all that, it was time to package the fresh baked cookies for the Firefighter, I labeled them by cookie and who it was made by, Betty Crocker has wonderful label to print out to use for when you make your Spreading Cheer baskets and don't forget to enter my giveaway!
We'd like y'all to join in on spreading cheer and show us who will you be baking up the next batch for?!
I have a $20 gift card giveaway to share with one of you!
