Thank you to Betty Crocker for sponsoring our easy Raspberry Filled Sugar Cookie Cups post and helping me #SpreadCheer this season!
One of my favorite memories is baking Christmas Cookies with my mom. We would make easy holiday treats and deliver them to family and close neighbors. This is just one of the ways my mom was amazing and helped to spread cheer around the holidays. And so I’m going to show you how to make some super easy Raspberry Filled Sugar Cookie Cups so you can help spread cheer too!
Easy Sugar Cookie Cups
With a new baby around, I don’t often get a lot of time to spend in the kitchen. But the kids are still looking forward to all the holiday fun of baking and sharing with the neighbors. It is a tradition my mom always had. And I have carried that tradition on with my family. The kids all know that we make Christmas Treat plates for neighbors around Christmas.
So while debating how I was going to pull off all the baking, I came across the awesome movement from Betty Crocker to help Spread Cheer. It is so simple! Simply make up a plate of cookies with the easy Betty Crocker cookie mixes. Deliver your cookies to a neighbor and share your photo of you sharing online with the hashtag #SpreadCheer and that’s it! Told you it was simple!
With my little helper, we mixed up a batch of Sugar Cookies and Chocolate Chip cookies.
It is so simple to include the kids when holiday baking with the Betty Crocker Cookie Mixes. Simply add the mix, egg and butter. Then mix.
For the Sugar Cookie Cups I used a cookie scoop to portion out the sugar cookies into a mini cupcake pan.
Then using the back of the cookie scoop I pressed down the center to create a cup shape.
Then bake according to the directions.
When you remove the cookies from the oven, gently press the back of the cookie scoop into the center of the cookies again to make sure they keep the cup shape.
Cool for 1 minute in the pan and then transfer to a cooling sheet.
Allow to cool thoroughly.
Then fill with my favorite homemade Raspberry Filling. And then top off with chocolate shavings. And that’s it! It is so simple, easy and yet very effective in making a delectable holiday cookie.
For the Chocolate chip cookies after I mixed them up, I turned the kids loose to decorate with some holiday colored chocolate candies.
Once all the cookies were baked and cooled, then simply transfer them to a paper plate or cookie treat box.
And then stop over and print off your free Gift Tags Printables!
Simply attach the gift tags to the cookies.
Then recruit your kids to help make the delivery. This is a great way to help them experience service and giving at this special time of the year.
Then go deliver them to someone special!Be it a neighbor, a friend, or a teacher. Just someone who may need some cheer this holiday. It is so simple to spread cheer this holiday season. And yet it makes such a difference to the recipient and to you the giver!
Who would you Spread Cheer to with our Raspberry Filled Sugar Cookie Cups?
