Spread Cheer This Holiday Season With Betty Crocker

With all of the traveling Jason and I have done over the past few weeks, little time was left for Christmas and holiday preparations. Between parties, baking, family time, shopping, preparing gifts, mailing packages, etc - just the thought of my never ending to-do list made this momma-to-be tired!

When faced with the challenge of baking cookies (with just a little over an hour to spare) for an upcoming Christmas party, I almost panicked. Lucky for me, I had the help of WalMart, Betty Crocker®,  and a good friend! Problem solved!

Betty Crocker® easy to bake cookie mixes are available in a wide variety of flavors, but I narrowed down my choices down to Sugar Cookie and Peanut Butter. At a low price, they are budget friendly, too! Want to spread Christmas cheer with a simple surprise? This is a great way to do so - read on to find out how!

As I mentioned before, I was short on time so my friend Melissa and I got right to work on the cookies! Baking is always more fun with a friend, anyway!

One of my favorite things about the Betty Crocker® cookie mixes was the simplicity of use. Each package only required a few ingredients (usually items that would be stocked in a pantry or fridge anyway)! I even forgot to check the ingredients before leaving the store but lucky for me, all ingredients were on hand at home!

While Melissa prepped the peanut butter cookies for baking, I was busy rolling out dough for the sugar cookies.

Although baking time for each type of cookie was different, we were finished in no time! 

Cutting out Christmas shapes in the dough was fun, too! 

After baking was complete, we enjoyed a cookie (or two...ok or maybe three...).

Spending time with Melissa was a great way to enjoy a little girl time while calming the pre-holiday jitters. We also shared a few of the cookies with our husbands and enjoyed spreading a little holiday cheer in the mean time!

I can't wait to bring these cookies to my upcoming Christmas party! They're so tasty, no one will believe how easy they were to bake! I didn't add any icing or sprinkles to the sugar cookies because we enjoy eating them as is - however, these would be fun to decorate with icing, sprinkles, and anything else you can imagine (and would also make a fun Christmas activity for the kids). I'm looking forward to a few of these "traditions" in the upcoming years! :)

How are you spreading cheer this holiday season?
