Holiday Cookies with Krusteaz {+giveaway}

Anyone else super behind on their holiday baking? I cannot believe that Christmas is NEXT WEEK? What the why??

Thankfully, I have a cookie baking date with my sister, Laura, for this weekend. We will make the family favorites – sugar cookies, star cookies, and hopefully a few new ones to try.

From our last BIG baking day. . . in 2012!


Oh and we can’t forget Christmas “crack”


And RPSs (Rolo Pretzel Sandwiches)


I am so thankful to be participating in Krusteaz’s Holiday Cookie blogger program this year too.


I know you guys have heard me talk about my love for Krusteaz cookie mixes before. . . LOVE them. Seriously. They are SO easy to make (stick of butter + an egg), Luke loves to help, and they taste delicious.


I’m also planning on using the butter vanilla sugar mix to make a Holiday inspired version of my sugar cookie bars.


I am thinking sprinkles + red frosting. Smile I’ll let you know how it turns out on Monday!
