3 in One Sugar Cookies

Short on time? Wait until you see how easy it is to make 3 different kinds of cookies from Betty Crocker’s Sugar Cookie mix. I’m also going to show you a twist on Peanut Butter Blossoms that will take less than 30 minutes to make including the baking time. You’re going to love to Spread Cheer with Simple Surprise!

Holiday season is in full swing at my house and I’m looking for shortcuts that will let me enjoy more time with my friends and family. On my schedule already for the weekend is to bake almost 200 cookies, make and decorate 3 gingerbread houses with the kids and make 2 desserts for parties I am going to. I’m busy and wouldn’t have it any other way.
