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!

  29. I love Pampered Chef! My favorite product I have is the stoneware large bar pan.

  30. There are so many Pampered Chef products that I love, so it is hard to narrow down my favorite. The one I use the most is probably the Parmesan cheese grater. My family loves fresh grated cheese and their grater makes it so easy.

  36. Linda Hayes says

    I love my pizza stone! BUT I use the wooden toast tongs daily. It was a $2 item I bought years ago along with other neat products. If they still have it, I recommend everyone adding it to their Pampered Chef Order. No more burned fingers trying to get the toast from the back of the toaster oven.

  37. I love their chopper! Use it all the time!

  38. Kristina Hays says

  51. I love to cook – I love cooking gadgets! My favorite Pampered Chef gadget are the cookie scoops. I use them to easily scoop out the no-bake oatmeal cookies and then just drop them on wax paper to harden. Five dozen cookies in less than 20 minutes? How easy is that!

  72. I just love your site, and getting your emails! I love cooking but I haven’t been able to cook much lately. It’s a long story, but I was diagnosed with MS in 2007 and had to quit my job. I ended up homeless while waiting to get approved for disability. It happens all too often. I am now in an apartment, and I get just enough monthly to pay rent and electric. So I am having a really hard time getting all my cooking/bakingware again. Needless to say it would be wonderful if I won! The thing I would like the most is the cookie press. Thank you so much for all the gluten free recipes you post! I haven’t been diagnosed, but my stomach sure does feel a lot better when on a gluten free diet!

  73. I have a baking stone and I love it for pizzas.

  74. Hi Lynn, I just now made your Crock Pot White Chicken Chili. I have been looking for a recipe like this one and you published at the right time. So so tasty.

    My favorite Pampered Chef products are the Large, Medium and Small bar pans. Everything bakes so nicely on them, even Jiffy Mix cornbread in the small bar pan.

    Thanks Lynn for sharing of yourself.

    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!
