In the last several years, I haven’t been really been baking (cooking yes), so when the folks at Betty Crocker offered to send me some things to bake up some good things, I happily accepted.
So we decided to make the sugar cookies from Betty Crocker. I like to bake and cook with my youngest child, Skylar. Skylar has a speech delay and some gross and fine motor skill issues. Adding ingredients and stirring what we are making gives him confidence and also helps him to follow directions (which he needs help with). Plus he’s happy, which makes me happy.
It was very easy to make — I used the mix, 1/2 cup of butter (I actually used a vegan butter spread) and an egg. We made simple drop cookies. If I wanted to use a cookie cutter, I could have decreased the butter to 1/3 cup, add an egg and stir in 1 tablespoon of all-purpose flour. But I didn’t want to get too ahead of myself — if we could keep these from burning, I’d try to make cut out cookies another time.
Turns out, I didn’t burn them. I put vanilla frosting on the cookie and let my son put sprinkles on. He was thrilled. Is Betty Crocker’s mix easy — yes? You can add spices and different flavors to really customize your cookies (there are recipes on their website and my gift basket included a cute little book with several ideas).
