When it's {SUPER} cold outside.....

What's better than baking cookies??

It came a NASTY weather day yesterday, and the kids were stuck inside. To the kids, being stuck inside and not being able to play with their friends is like taking a sugar addict in a candy store and telling them they can only look!

So, once I came home from work and we had supper, we watched a couple movies and decided we needed some sweets to snack on. So, in the kitchen we went and cookies we made!

We cheated a little....we used the Valentine's Funfetti cake mix for the base of our cookie dough.

{The ingredients are as pictured....a box of cake mix, 1/3 cup of oil, 2 eggs, and VIOLA! There's your cake dough!}

The kids got busy whipping up our dough....they're my little bakers in the making.

Once you get all the ingredients in the bowl, what do you do????

Why, MIX MIX MIX, of course! LOL!

They mixed they're little hearts out until the dough formed, and then it was time to scoop the dough into balls & pop them into the oven. They bake quickly...6-8 minutes.

Then there came the kids most FAVORITE part of the whole cookie baking process.....


My bakers and their finished products!

This was definitely worth the $2.50 in ingredients & the messy kitchen that came with their baking. The kids had a blast and so did I. Not to mention, their cookies were reeeeallly good!
