When I do my holiday baking, I usually make everything from scratch–most things really do taste better that way. But I’m not too proud to take shortcuts when a box mix works really well, like with these peanut butter kiss cookies or these pumpkin spice cookies. Last weekend I did some baking from a box to send some goodies back to college with my son.
These are are easy as could be–just thaw (overnight) and bake. The hardest part is waiting for them to cool before succumbing to the warm, flakey, chocolatey goodness!
Santa brought me this Ninjabread men kit, and I knew they would be perfect to bring a smile to my son’s face on his first night back in his dorm room.
This kit did require some work–make the dough, refrigerate it, roll it out, cut out the ninjabread men, bake, and decorate–but they turned out surprisingly well!
