Tis the season to Get Your Betty On (#GetYourBettyOn)! I’m ready to head to the kitchen with my kiddo to create some memories of baking cookies and would like to invite you to join me. Betty Crocker makes baking cookies simple and fun with kids! Thanks to Betty’s convenient cookie mixes, frosting and kid friendly recipes, homemade delicious cookies are a cinch to whip up during the busy holiday season. The cookie mix pouches save tons of time in the kitchen and let moms and dads concentrate on the more important stuff like bonding over warm Chocolate Chip Cookies and glass of cold milk. So, let’s get baking!
This year Betty Crocker pulled together a helpful online Kid’s Cookie Corner featuring their picks for the Top 10 cookies for kids and short, inspirational how-to videos on each. The Christmas collection of cookie recipes is absolutely adorable! For instance, check out these Present Cookies! Aren’t they sweet? And the recipe looks very simple to make too!
My baking partner (7 year old son) gathered the supplies and we decided to make the Chocolate Chip Reindeer Cookies. The cookies were a cinch to bake and decorate! He had a blast cutting the reindeer out using the gingerbread boy cookie cutter.
He had so much fun that we also whipped up a batch of the Melting Snowmen Cookies.
We had a fabulous time baking together. I even got a few scrapbook worthy photos for memory lane!
