I love to bake, and I especially love to eat yummy treats. With my increasingly busy schedule I find myself baking less and less. I’m sure we have all been faced with the question of whether or not we should make homemade goodies, or buy an easy store-bought package. Then do we concern ourselves with what preservatives, colors and flavors have been added to said store-bought packages? I am happy to say that I am partnering with the J.M. Smucker Company to introduce their Purely Simple Baking Mixes. I will tell you that my Hootie Creek Cookie Bites are a good testament to the Pillsbury Purely Simple Baking Mixes and their homemade taste, and lack of colors and preservatives.
In addition to coming up with a fun way to use the Purely Simple Sugar Cookie Mix, I get to take part in a fun blog hop. My Hootie Creek Cookie Bites just got shipped over to Six Sisters’ Stuff, and I will be receiving some brownie goodness from Our Ordinary Life. You can check them both out to see what they’ve whipped up as part of the hop, as well as check out their other yummy recipes.
You see, Pillsbury Purely Simple Sugar Cookies are delicious as is. If you want to make something a little fancier, then add in white chocolate chips, craisins and chopped pecans, and you’ve got Hootie Creek Cookie goodness.
Then for bite-sized fun, bake them up in a mini muffin pan. I did find these to be a bit tricky in removal from said pan, so I opted for mini muffin papers. Aren’t they just the cutest?
I would love to hear what surprises you would tuck into the Sugar Cookie Mix. Comment or tag me on social media, with your add-ins. Don’t forget to check out the blog hop and see what everyone else is whipping up in the kitchen – with thanks to Pillsbury for a head start on the inspiration.
