Spritz Cookies – Just Because

The Christmas cookies are long gone, but that doesn’t mean my girl and I don’t still love baking together. This weekend we used a mix, something I’ve never done before.

Betty Crocker sent me a sugar cookie mix and it was fun to try it out. While it didn’t have spritz cookie directions on the package, we did it anyway — and they were so fun.

I really need to dig out that cookie press more often!

I shot out cookies and FishChick4 sprinkled them with turbinado sugar. Yum!

This week Betty Crocker, Safeway, and Glad have teamed up to offer a fun giveaway to one LifeasMOM reader.

The prize includes a package of Betty Crocker Sugar Cookie Mix, a GladWare sample pack and a $25 Safeway gift card (also valid at Dominick’s, Tom Thumb, Randalls, Vons, and Genuardi’s).

So fun to do with the kids now that SuperBowl and Valentine’s Day are approaching.

Simply leave a comment, telling us your favorite kind of cookie.

Comments will be open until Sunday, January 23, 8 pm, PST. Winner will be chosen randomly and notified via email. This Giveaway is now closed. Congrats to smontemorra@

Disclosure: This information, prize pack and giveaway have all been provided by Safeway, Betty Crocker and Gladware through MyBlogSpark.

  142. I love, LOVE spritz cookies. How do you make them using a sugar cookie mix?

    • Jessica Fisher says:

      Well, I don’t know if this is a scientific method. But, this is what I did. I pulsed the mix and hard butter (whatever it said on the package) in the food processor until there were crumbs, like pie crust. This is basically because I was too lazy to wait for the butter to soften. Then I added the egg and whirled it until it was dough. Then I mushed it into the press.

  143. One of my favorite is oatmeal chocolate chip.

  144. White chocolate chip cookies are the favorites in my house.

  145. LOVE peanut butter cookies.
