"Huh? How is that possible?" Are you wondering this? I shall show you how it's possible! Here's your short grocery list:
- Pillsbury Shape Sugar Cookies
- Pillsbury Easy Frost
- Sprinkles (India Tree Sparkling Sugars are the best, tell it to your neighbor!)
Now to start, have the kids tackle the dough. (This is in lieu of the rolling pin, flour and cookie cutters.) Have them place the cookies on the baking sheet:
You may need to make a few adjustments if yours look like ours.
Next, bake them as instructed. It is important not to over bake these, so watch your oven! Then take them out and let them cool completely.
As you can see (in the above picture) they may get a little misshaped with the spatula but that's okay! Next, decorating is done in 3 simple steps.
#1. ICING - Ice the backside of a cookie by holding it in the palm of your hand and swirling it on with the other hand.
#2. SANDWICH - Set the iced cookie on the plate and let the kids close the sandwich with a top cookie.
#3. DIP - A little icing will ooze out the side, so when you dip the cookie onto the sprinkles they will stick. Dip and turn until you have sprinkles all the way around the cookie.
These will be finished before you can take a picture to post on Instagram.
They are so good! My sister came over the other night and said, "I'll take some of those!" We've been making these for years and everybody loves them!
So if you're planning on baking with young kiddos, don't get halfway through the process and wonder what have you gotten yourself into. Save yourself and go the easy route for a few years!
Did I mention these taste good? They're sooooo good!
