Bake Sweet Memories

by - 1/24/2011

The Holidays might be over, but that doesn't mean the time for baking or sharing some sweet goodness is past. On the contrary, thanks to Betty Crocker, GladWare and the Safeway Family of Stores, we can keep our loved ones' hearts and homes filled with holiday spirit and homemade goodness of Betty Crocker. For some delicious inspiration, the Bake Sweet Memories website is right there filled with recipes of yummy treats that include Baklava Bars, Peppermint Cream Brownie Torte, and many others. 

My kids and I had great fun going through them. While I'm sure they're all wonderful, we chose to stick to the classic, all-time favorite in my family - sugar cookies! I used the gift card I got for review to go to Tom Thumb (which belongs to the Safeway family of stores) near my home to get the eggs and the butter. Later on that afternoon we decided to do the cookies. Now, keep in mind, I'm no baker. But these were super easy to make. My son, who loves using scissors (under supervision, of course!), helped me cut open the Betty Crocker Sugar Cookie mix (seen in the photo above, along with the Gladware and my child's eager young hand) and then later on helped me stir the mix.

And my toddler was more interested in playing with the scattered flour and generally getting in the way :-) And then, lo behold, there were cookies! Super warm and equally soft and tasty to eat. The photos I took turned out way too dark, but they were similar to the ones pictured above.

To store them we used Glad's Deep Dish container that easily held all the cookies we made. Not only are they BPA-free, but they're also the perfect solution for storing and transporting any kind of food items. They're also great for gift giving.
