Candy Cane Sugar Cookies and a Pampered Chef Giveaway

 

Giveaway over. Erin is the winner: I love the stir-chop thing for browning ground beef! :-) I sent you an email Erin. 

Holiday baking is about so much more than baking, it is about the memories. It is not about that perfect dessert or holiday, cookie it is about the time spent in the kitchen with family and friends.

A few weeks ago I was asked to be part of The Pampered Chef’s Holiday Bake-Off and it was something I was excited to be part of. I love Pampered Chef and have been using their products for years and I love holiday baking and spending time in the kitchen with my family, so the combination was perfect.

I am not sure I can name all the Pampered Chef items in my kitchen. I have, and love, their stoneware pans, their adjustable measuring spoons, their batter bowls, their serving dishes, and so many more items.  (And if you love their products as much as I do, keep reading, I have a fun giveaway for you.)

Last week I received a box of Pampered Chef products and I loved opening it to see what new and fun products they sent me.  And my girls and I had so much fun putting the items to use this weekend as part of some holiday baking and cookie making.

What did we make? Candy Cane Sugar Cookies!

These were so much fun to make and were perfect for the holidays. My girls and I made the dough and they had so much fun shaping the dough into candy cane shapes.

The recipe below is for a gluten free sugar cookie dough that we used for these candy cane cookies, but I also put directions for using any basic sugar cookie dough.

And make sure to check below the recipe for the fun giveaway from Pampered Chef!

  67. How to pick a favorite PC product????? I love so many of them! The non-stick cookware is amazing as well as the white bowl scraper spoon thingy…..I forgot the name of it!
