I received a package from Kraft Foods in order to help promote their Recipe for Joy program. Inside the package, I received some recipes to help me entertain this holiday season, some ingredients to help me create these recipes and a gift card to allow me to purchase the remaining required ingredients.
My daughter and I took our first Holiday Baking Adventure together today! We made
Sugar Cookie Cutouts. They were super easy to make and boy do the ever taste delish! My daughter had a blast decorating them. Here is how they turned out:
