Happy Thanksgiving Eve! Obviously I know that Thanksgiving is tomorrow but are you guys in full on cookie holiday baking mode like I am?!?
I think that I have made about 6 different kind of cookies already. It’s crazy but the neighbors absolutely love me because I keep surprising them with little goodies.
I usually do this every year, where I make a bunch of cookies and then do the rounds throughout the neighborhood and drop them off to all the neighbors.
However, these past couple years I just wasn’t into baking all that much and my cookie baking didn’t happen. Maybe because of getting used to the snow and winter’s here?
I dunno… but to help me get out of my cookie funk I teamed up with Betty Crocker to help #SpreadCheer this holiday season and give the gift of cookies to everyone!
So I got to baking and started making all kinds of fun treats for the holiday season. Along with some of my usual staples, I decided to try my hand at cookie truffles.
After making some of these delicious truffles, I had my babygirl head over and drop them off on the doorstep of our neighbors house.
I feel like they always do so much for us and rarely do I get to return the favors they do for us so surprising them with a basket full of peanut butter cookie truffles seemed like a perfect little way to say “thanks!”
And now I want to nominate YOU to help #SpreadCheer this holiday season by creating your own little cookie gift basket and giving it to someone special to you.
When you surprise your favorite people with fresh-baked goodness made straight from the heart, you’re letting them know that their good deeds don’t go unnoticed – like the neighbors mowing my lawn for me when I was pregnant (yes that happened!).
