If you know me well, you know I hate to cook. I can cook, and I mean from scratch. I was the nerd in high school with 100% in Home Economics. I was even in FHA! Lord, that was embarrassing (for them, not me) to admit. Honestly, I'm actually a pretty good cook if a actually get off my butt and do it. But, I hate it! All that standing, and prepping, and stirring only to spend a few minutes eating. Then there's the clean-up. Have I mentioned I hate to clean too? I'm a neat freak and like to pick up, but I don't like to actually clean. You know, soap, water, elbow grease, etc? Anyway, when the holidays arrive I start to stress. I think I should be baking or something, you know, be domestic and stuff? Creating holiday memories for the children. Well...
I found this cute website over the weekend. It's nothing mind blowing, but Pillsbury has put together some cookie ideas that have only 3 ingredients. That's my kind of baking and clean-up!
Pillsbury® Holiday Cookies 3 Ingredients to Wow!
Pictured is the Christmas Tree Sandwich Cookies. Here's how easy they are:
1 package (13 oz) Pillsbury® Ready To Bake!® SHAPE® Christmas tree sugar cookies
3/4 cup vanilla frosting (from 1-1b container frosting)
1.Heat oven to 350°F. Bake cookies as directed on package. Cool completely, about 15 minutes.
2. For each sandwich cookie, spread 1 tablespoon frosting on bottom of 1 cookie. Top with second cookie, bottom side down; press together gently. Sprinkle around outer edge of frosting with candy sprinkles. Store loosely covered.
Sounds so easy, and perfect for the kiddos to help with. Older kids could help with the baking and everyone including real little ones, can frost, assemble or add sprinkles. It sounds messy but fun!
