How many of you love Pinterest? I got addicted to it this year. Pinning like mad. And trying things. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. Well, this was a pin I came across and had hoped to make on Christmas Morning….however, I could not find it for the life of me! And I had forgotten to pin it! OH MY! So, after learning that some good friends were coming to visit for an overnight, I made the plan to Aldify this recipe…which meant I had to find it again. I FOUND IT!!!!
Since it is NOT my recipe and I only used Aldi ingredients, I'm not going to share the recipe - instead, I'll share the link to the originator. Please visit her site and try this! It's soooooo yummy. The picture is mine. I had to adapt a little b/c I don't have a bundt pan, I only have a monkey bread pan. As you can see it turned out quite well, and it was all gone in a matter of minutes, so I believe it was popular.
Please do stay tuned, though. I do have some of my own adjustments to it that I intend to test and try and will put an adjusted recipe on soon.
In the meantime, enjoy the original!

I'm gonna get a lot of flack for this recipe. It starts with a cake mix (go ahead Kristy, gimme your best eye rolls and groans!). It also happens to be derivative of a recipes I've shared before, the Cake Mix Cookies. It's been updated and enhanced a little bit for use as cutouts.
Yesterday, it snowed. A lot. And even though we're homeschoolers, and had schoolwork to do, all of our out-of-the-house activities got cancelled. My oldest and I spent part of our day preparing doughs for Christmas Cookies. A double batch of Ultimate Snickerdoodles, PB Kiss and Oatmeal Scotchies. While the kids played in the snow and built a snowman, I watched from the kitchen window while preparing this dough on my own. While hubby took my youngest to gymnastics, I rolled out the dough and baked them.
Today, we had a light agenda, so we decorated the cookies. It was lots of fun. Made memories.
1 Box Baker's Corner Yellow Cake Mix
1 stick Country Creamer Butter, softened
2 Golden Hen Eggs
1 tsp Stonemill Essentials Pure Vanilla Extract
In a mixer, mix together butter, cake mix, eggs and vanilla extract until smooth.
Place in a baggie and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
Preheat oven to 350.
Roll out dough on a well-floured surface. Use floured cookie cutters and cut out. Place on a greased cookie sheet about 1 1/2 apart.
Bake for 12-15 minutes until edges are JUST starting to get golden.
Remove from oven and allow cooling on cookie sheet for about 5 minutes before trying to remove them. Once cooled, decorate with Baker's Corner Vanilla frosting and Christmassy sprinkles!

Now that I've grabbed your attention!
A few years ago, I did the 12 Recipes of Christmas, counting down to Christmas day. It included some yummy cookies and such.
I thought of all of you as I am starting to make my cookie doughs!
Would love to hear what you like to bake this time of year! Please comment! If you have a link to the recipe, by all means, SHARE SHARE SHARE!!! :)
