Cookie time with Krusteaz {+giveaway}

This weekend at the Lake, Luke and I got busy in the kitchen thanks to Krusteaz. They were nice enough to send me some of their new cookie mixes.


And OMG. So easy and so good. And perfect for my little helper in the kitchen.

Luke is at this super fun age (3 1/2) where he wants to help and he is starting to be able to really help with mixing and measuring without making a huge mess. . . I mean, we still make a mess, but at least both of us don’t need to shower after a batch of cookies. . .


So, we picked out two flavors to try – triple chocolate chunk and brown sugar oatmeal. Spoiler alert – both delicious.


All you do is add a stick of softened butter and an egg to the mix. Mix all together. And bake.



It took Luke and I about 15 minutes to get the mixes all put together. *If I was working alone, it would probably be about 5 minutes.

And eat.


And then Luke loved serving them to everyone waiting on the porch.



Thanks Krusteaz for a fun family activity and yummy cookies. Smile

  9. I’m thinking the Oatmeal Scotchie (Which I assume means butterscotch?) or the gingerbread cookies would be perfect fall treats!
