Mother's Day came and went this year, and for me, it was like any other day, really. I did laundry, cleaned up around the house and scrambled around trying to get the kids ready to meet my mom for lunch. Since my kids are still little, Mother's Day is still all about my mom. Rylie made her a pretty picture, I got her some earrings, and we met halfway between our houses for a nice lunch. That is all I needed for Mother's Day - just some time spent with my mom!
I had seen these adorable Mickey Mouse Mother's Day cookies from Pillsbury advertised in the weeks before Mother's Day, so Rylie and I were planning to make them to surprise my mom (aka Mama) with. Unfortunately, I waited until the last minute and could not find them anywhere when I went out looking for them that weekend. Since I had a VIP coupon for a free package of Pillsbury Ready to Bake! Shape Cookies, I kept looking for them even after Mother's Day, and I finally found them!
Along with my coupon, I also received a Pillsbury Cookie Jar, Spatula and Oven Mitt, so earlier this evening, Rylie and I decided to fill that cookie jar up!
Mother's Day had come and gone, but these cookies say "I Love Mom" on them, which is said daily around my house anyway. Really, it is. And plus, cookies are cookies, and we certainly don't need a special holiday around here to make them!
Quick and convenient, Pillsbury Ready to Bake! Shape Cookies are ready to enjoy in 8-10 minutes. All you have to do is remove them from the package, space them out on a cookie sheet (I love to use stones when I bake cookies) and pop them in the oven. It is so easy, a 4 year old can do it!
I like my cookies soft and chewy so I set the timer for 8 minutes and then checked them. They weren't that close to being done, so I put them back in for a few minutes. They were probably in the oven for 12 minutes total. They came out so cute!
By the time the kids got done with their baths, the cookies were cool and ready to eat. They scarfed the first ones down before they even hit the chairs they were supposed to be sitting in. They asked for one more so I gave them one and asked them to hold them up for a picture. Rylie just couldn't do it. She was like a little Cookie Monster and had that cookie in her mouth before I could even get my hands on the camera!
Everyone definitely enjoyed the cookies! They were soft and chewy on the inside just like I like them. I decided that I needed to get them put away before we ate them all, so in the cookie jar they went.
Speaking of my little Cookie Monster, look who I found trying to sneak another one...
The Pillsbury Ready to Bake! Shape Cookies make a delicious treat and they are quick and easy to make. There are different shapes for different holidays, like the Flag Shape cookies that are now available at grocery stores everywhere. These would be great to take to holiday parties, or just to have as a little treat at home. Yum!
