This is a partnered post with Betty Crocker.
Holidays often start with simple traditions for our family like getting the tree and decorating the house. Making sweet treats is another big part of our holiday and our girls enjoy cooking and baking. We’re making a lot of cookies this year to bring to different functions.
We enjoy creating things together and cookies from Betty Crocker are easy to make and fun to enjoy. Our oldest can easily follow the directions n the package and it’s really something we do together. I let her pick any Betty Crocker recipe to make and she chose the ornament sugar cookies. We started right away making a Betty Crocker Sugar Cookie Mix. After making the cookies we picked our favorite cookie cutters to cut them out.
Cut them out and place them on parchment paper to bake.
Bake for 5 minutes and then add broken candy cane pieces. at top of cookies. Bake for another two minutes then allow to sit on cookie tray for another three minutes.
Transfer to cooling rack and allow the to fully cool.
When you are ready to frost heat up in Betty Cracker vanilla frosting in the microwave and dip the cookies.
Dip the cookies and allow them to fully dry. Then you can decorate accordingly.
We added ribbons and hung them on the tree. They’re just such an adorable fun twist on a sugar cookie and a hit with our family!
