The wonderful folks at My Blog Spark contacted me and asked if I would be interested in particpating in their Holiday Cookie Exchange. I was thrilled and of course said yes. The box I received in the mail contained Betty Crocker's Sugar Cookie Mix, Glad Storage Containers and a $25.00 Safeway card. Seriously how awesome is that!!!
I know you can all relate, there's never enough time at the holidays. I'd planned to make cutout cookies with the cookie mix but just never found the time. This week has been just a little quieter. Finally I found the time to bake!! I've been on a peppermint kick this season. You have no idea how many peppermint recipes I have bookmarked. How about peppermint sugar cookies? I made the Betty Crocker Sugar Cookies and stirred in about 1/2 cup of crushed peppermint candies. These cookies were so quick and easy to make. They taste like homemade, chewy in the center and just a little crispy around the edges. YUM! A beautiful homemade cookie in minutes! Thank You to My Blog Spark!!
I will be sharing these with my co-workers tomorrow. My own version of a Cookie Exchange and the holiday...New Year's!!!
Disclosure: I received a set of Gladware, a Betty Crocker Sugar Cookie Mix, and a Safeway gift card as a member of My Blog Spark for the purposes of this review. All opinions are my own.
