Make It Yours Cookie Sweepstakes


Last week we were invited by Simply Real Moms to be part of the Country Crock® Make It Yours™ challenge. The idea was to come up with a creative cookie using our mix in ideas and the Country Crock® cookie dough base. We were having so much fun thinking of all kinds of unique and yummy cookie ideas. In the end we decided on these fun Holiday Elf Cookies, find the recipe HERE. (We actually have a second secret idea that we are excited about that we will be posting soon.)
