I am a part of the Mom Ambassador program through www.greenmomsmeet.com, and was given Bob’s Red Mill products to sample with my friends and pass out to them. As always, any thoughts and opinions are my own.
We had a little Easter cookie decorating party last week for our friends.
Elijah helped me make the sugar cookies the night before. I’m pretty sure that this was the most interest he has shown in actually helping me bake, but cookies are an incredible motivator. His spiderman lego guy helped too.
He wanted every single cookie to be an egg. But my mom and I convinced him that his friends might want bunnies or flowers instead.
Lots of Eli and Emmy’s friends came and there was plenty of decorating and eating and sprinkle spilling. I was impressed by the creative abilities of toddlers and preschoolers.
Addison’s cookie looked nicer than my own.
Emmy didn’t decorate a cookie but she was happy to eat any that were decorated for her.
It got a little messy, as Kendal demonstrates, but nothing that a washcloth or vacuum couldn’t handle.
I even had a little station set up with cute Easter washi tape to package up the cookies. And then all of the moms got to take home some Bob’s Red Mill flour and coupons.
I had big pinterest-y plans about how cute I was going to decorate for the party but it didn’t happen. I think it was pretty cute considering. I used a different sugar cookie recipe than my norm, because my Kitchenmaid mixer is still in storage. It turned out yummy, but it made about 28 cookies. Which was probably for the best because I ate most of the leftover cookies. (Here’s the recipe if you’re interested, from In Katrina’s Kitchen.) I picked this one because it didn’t require the dough to be refrigerated before cutting the shapes. I used Bob’s Red Mill Un-Bleached White Organic All Purpose Flour and Fine Crystal Cane Sugar.
I like Bob’s Red Mill products because they are certified organic and non-GMO. They do not contain any fillers, additives, or preservatives, so it makes me feel a little better about letting my kids eat two sugar cookies before lunch. or three. or four…
