I’m Lovin’ It – Easy Spring Cookies are in the Bag with Betty

My family is pretty easy to please.  Most often it’s the most simple treats they enjoy the most

I LOVE the Betty Crocker Cookie Mixes, and always keep a few in my pantry. (No one is paying me to write this…I just LOVE these mixes) .  We use them all the time in the chocolate chip cookie brownies , whoopie pies and I even use them for holiday baking.

Betty Crocker Spring Cookies

Last week I decided to give my new whoopie pie pan a maiden voyage……..she would be the perfect tool for making perfectly uniform large cookies.

Betty Crocker Spring Cookies

I grabbed a Betty Crocker Sugar cookie mix, all you need is one egg and one stick of butter for a great tasting cookie dough!

Press the dough into the whoopie pie pan, and add some spring sprinkles, or M&M’s (I didn’t have a bag of spring colors, so I picked out yellow, green and blue)

bake 9 minutes, cool about 10 minutes before removing from pan

    Hi! So glad to link up – what a fun party. And those cookies look delish – I’ve never heard of a woopie pan, will have to try that out!

    I love the Betty Crocker cookie mixes too!

    I love those packets too. My kids know that T/R are my days off and they love a home baked snack when they get home from school. This week I used the packet for peanut butter cookies to make pb choc bars. I pressed the pb cookie dough into a square pan, baked them for 20 minutes, sprinkled a cup of choc chips on top, popped the pan back in the oven for 2 minutes, spread the melted choc chips, and then served to hungry kids with a big glass of cold milk. Yum! Thanks for hosting. I love your whoopie pie pan!

    Isn’t the whoopie pie pan GREAT for making other cookies? I keep trying new uses for mine – yesterday I made mini muffin tops – worked wonderfully!
