On Fridays, we bake. I am not talking about some Fridays… every Friday. We take our baking seriously in this house.
It’s a bit of a family tradition for us. After dinner, the kids start creeping out to the kitchen and checking out the scene. They know it’s coming. ~cue the Jaws music~ They are circling. They also know the first kid in the kitchen when the baking starts picks the cookie. When you have 3 kids, being the one that gets to pick the cookie is a big deal.
The kids would argue over which cookie recipe we would make, but I have an excellent solution now. The Country Crock® Make It YoursTM Cookie Recipe! Why do I love it? Not only does it make an out of this world cookie, but one easy recipe can make all the cookies you can dream up! The Country Crock® Make It YoursTM Cookie Recipe can take on any mix-in imaginable. That means this Mama can make one batch of cookie dough and split it between the kids. The little lightbulbs come on with a spark of creativity and they are ready to make their own unique creations.
Do you know how excited a kid gets in the kitchen when they have created their own cookie? OMG! I smile just thinking about it! By the time we are done we have a huge mess, but we are laughing, having fun, and making memories. Those are the days we are going to remember forever!
I am going to have to pick up some more Country Crock® Baking Sticks, along with some fun cookie mix-ins at the store this week to make our Friday baking super simple. Country Crock® is a buttery spread that is the go-to ingredient for baking and cooking, made with real, simple ingredients, including delicious oils, purified water, and a pinch of salt. You can Visit CountryCrock.com/recipes for more yummy recipes and meal inspiration.
We are planning on having a Mother’s Day Baking Extravaganza! I can’t imagine a better way to spend Mother’s Day than giggling and eating cookies. The kids are going to have a contest on who can impress me the most with their #MakeItYours Cookie. I seriously can’t wait!! This is going to be the most delicious fun we have had in a long time.
So what is my dream cookie you ask? I am really hoping someone mixes in some dried strawberries and white chocolate. That sounds HEAVENLY! Doesn’t it?!? Some other fun mix-in ideas
- chocolate chip, marshmallow, mini grahams.
- Peanut butter cups
- diced maraschino cherries
- Lime & toasted coconut
- and so much more!
