Not according to Scarlet! We were in Target last week and she couldn’t decide which Betty Crocker cookie mix to get to bake for our neighbor. We got them all, but decided to start baking with the Sugar Cookie mix, because sprinkles.
Now to be completely honest, days are long and hard and by the time school lets out at 3:00pm, sometimes making cookies is the last thing I want to do. It’s different with this cookie mix, though. And with Scarlet’s cute face. And with the fact that we wanted to make holiday cookies for our neighbor. We live in the woods and we don’t actually have a lot of neighbors, but we do have one all the way down the driveway by our mailbox. And she’s older and lives alone and her husband passed away within the last year or two. She always has a kind word and a wave for me, and I’m often getting out of my minivan at the bottom of the driveway, shouting something back to the kids, and blasting Tom Petty. Still, my neighbor smiles at me.
So Scarlet and I got to work! It wasn’t as messy as normal and the dough consistency was awesome. It also smelled and tasted amazing. I don’t taste it because of raw eggs, but Scarlet can never help herself. We were both covered with flour after!
Betty Crocker Products are always here to provide sweet treats without all the preparation, extensive shopping lists, and time commitment. Hence, how easy it was for me to say “yes” to Scarlet. These cookie mixes allow me to take a break from the holiday craze and just enjoy being with my kids. I’m so glad Target carries their cookie mixes.
