Baking with Kraft Foods

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:

    I have wonderful memories of rolled out sugar cookies! I’m looking forward to making them with my grandkidlets this Christmas this year instead of for them!

    these sound interesting. I’ve never put cream cheese into a cookie dough before. I’ll give these a try at Christmas I think.
