Sometimes I feel like everyone I know expects to walk into my house and find trays and platters filled with a bounteous amount of sweets. Judging from this site and it’s plethora of recipes I’m sure the average reader would too. I hate to break it to the world but that’s just not how it is at all! Do I bake? Yes! Do I probably bake more than your average mom? Yes. Do I have crazy busy days where I need a sugar fix fast but have no desire to bake something elaborate from scratch? Absolutely! Do I sometimes not care about creating the next great recipe and just want to spend time with my kids in the kitchen doing something we all love doing? Without a doubt! I find my greatest memories that I’ve created with my kids around food is when they are the chefs and I’m just the assistant. Thank goodness it’s so easy to bake cookies while making memories with Betty Crocker.

When my kids ask if they can bake something I don’t want them to watch me bake. I don’t want them to just add in one item each. My three youngest have been in a huge kick to learn to cook and bake this last year. They crave a more hands on experience. I can easily give them that with Betty Crocker.

This week while I was picking up some stuff at Walmart for the holidays I remembered that the kids had been asking to bake something new. I stopped at the baking aisle and picked up pouches of Betty Crocker® Sugar and Peanut Butter cookie mixes. It was time to get our bake on with Betty!

Without the need for an electric mixer the kids were able to easily stir in and mix the required ingredients I had measured out for them.

My job was to scoop the dough so they could roll it into balls and to man the oven to ensure perfectly cooked cookies.

They have never helped me make Snickerdoodles, Peanut Butter Cookies or Peanut Butter Blossoms before. My son loved dipping a fork in the sugar and making the well-loved criss-cross pattern onto the peanut butter cookies. Pressing the chocolates into the Peanut Butter Blossoms was also a huge hit.

The biggest hit of all though was getting to eat the cookies together when they were done and seeing their faces light up when they realized how good their cookies tasted!
