Today was a rainy/sunny day which just so happens to be my favorite kind of day. It was also the perfect day to relax and bake. April showers bring May flowers. April showers also bring rainbows! Since I didn’t see any rainbows today though, I decided to put them into my cookies. Rainbow sprinkles are my favorite, if a treat is covered with sprinkles I go nuts. I’ve been obsessed with sprinkles since I was a little girl, throughout my entire life I would get a container of sprinkles and just eat them. That’s why I’m so damn sweet and colorful.
The first steps you must do for you baking adventure is to make a cup of tea, light a candle, and blast some groovy tones. This is really required for most things in life though. My tea of choice today was lemon hibiscus, My candle is Daffodil from Yankee Candle, & for my music I’ve been recently obsessed with The Chainsmokers and was perfect for my baking day…especially the songs Roses and Kanye.
I’m no baker. So here you find that I use a lot of the boxed mixes. Maybe someday soon I will do an actually full on baking blog. Today I found a mix though that really did have simple ingredients, just like the box advertises. I compared the ingredients from this mix to another Pillsbury sugar cookie mix and didn’t realize how many nasty chemicals were in the other mixes! I will never go back.
All you need for this mix is a stick of butter and one large egg. I always add a little extra vanilla too, I’m also obsessed with vanilla. Yummy! When you go to mix your cookies, it’s always best if you have an electric mixer. I’ve actually never purchased an electric mixer which was completely okay until I tired mixing cookie dough, cookie dough is much more difficult mix then cake batter. Oops!
Once I finally mixed the dough I added the sprinkles, yippie! When you are finished mixing all of the goods together then spoon them onto a baking pan and throw those puppies into the oven. WAIT! Don’t throw them ALL in the oven. You need some of that cookie dough fix too! 😉
I thought they looked really nice right out of the oven just how they were and tasting amazing. Just sweet enough! If you are into extra sweetness though let me introduce you to, in my opinion, THE best store bought frosting! It’s the Betty Crocker Whipped Frosting. I first discovered the whipped fluffy white a couple years ago when I made cupcakes for my friend’s surprise birthday party. She actually really dislikes frosting but LOVED those cupcakes and that frosting. It reminds me of my grandma’s homemade frosting! It’s not too sweet and has a really great fluffy and light texture. I cannot go back to any other brand, ever!
I hope you all enjoyed my blog and that it has inspired you to create something colorful and sweet!
