One of my favorite things to do during the December holidays is to make plates of cookies to give to my friends and family. I love making cookies from scratch, but I also love starting from a mix and doctoring it up into something special! I normally put everything on plates and hope they don't spill. The Gladware containers are perfect for that. They are large and hold a lot of cookies, and airtight so they don't get stale!
Another fun thing I would like to try eventually is a cookie exchange! It's a great excuse to get your friends together and to get to try many different treats without having to cook them all! Bakesweetmemories.com is a great website to check out for tips on how to host a cookie exchange party or to find awesome recipes!
Would you like to try some sugar cookies or host a cookie exchange? Thanks to the folks at MyBlogSpark, one lucky winner will receive the same Betty Crocker Sugar Cookie Mix, Glad storage containers, and $25 Safeway GC that I did!
