Pillsbury sent our family a sampling of their new cakes, cookies, and brownie mixes. I was excited to see Perfectly Pumpkin cookies because I love pumpkin flavored desserts. The Mocha Fudge brownies also sounded delicious because it mixes two of my favorites (coffee and chocolate)! Jacob, my three year old, chose his favorite which of course were the Funfetti cookies because they had sprinkles and were chocolate (wonder where he got the love of chocolate from?!).
Jacob helped Daddy make the Chocolate Funfetti cookies. Daddy measured all the ingredients and Jacob did the mixing. I loved watching him try to get the egg with the spoon because the yolk kept moving. Jacob loved the way the batter smelled and kept sniffing it. His favorite part, though, was eating the cookies! Lucas ate a few, too. They liked picking the sprinkles off the cookie and gobbled them up.
I can’t wait to try the other mixes that we were sent. The only thing I like more than eating the treats is how our house smells while they are baking :)
