Thanks to Pete & Gerry’s Organic Eggs for sponsoring today’s post.
I love the holidays especially all the holiday baking. I bake all year round but there is just something special about holiday cookies. Maybe it’s surprising friends and family with delicious homemade cookies or just spending time in the kitchen with my kids creating memories. Whatever it is, it’s one of my favorite holiday activities.
We’ve been quite busy baking all sorts of delicious cookies this year. One of my favorite recipes by far is these delicious snickerdoodles. These were one of my favorite cookies growing up so I just love baking these with my own kids.
In fact, these are one of my most requested cookies from family every year. Everyone waits for me to make them and they don’t last long when I do.
There’s just something about a warm, delicious cookie dusted in cinnamon sugar that is so comforting. It’s no wonder why I love curling up on the couch with a few cookies and a nice glass of milk after a long day.
Baking them is actually my favorite part. I love spending time in the kitchen with my kids. Both of them love to cook. Well, the little one loves to watch and play with all the things but my son is a pro in the kitchen. I’ve been cooking with him since he was two and he’s turned into quite the little chef.
While I have no aversion to baking from a box mix sometimes it’s fun to take it a step further and make them from scratch. When we bake from scratch, there’s a lot of time and thought that goes into selecting the perfect recipe all the way down to the ingredients used in that recipe like flour and eggs. Pete and Gerry’s Organic Eggs were the perfect eggs for this family recipe.
