#SpreadCheer this Holiday with Betty Crocker Cookies Plus a $20 Paypal Cash Giveaway

SpreadCheer Cookie Tin

This holiday season Betty Crocker is challenging you to spread some holiday cheer by baking some cookies and leaving them on a doorstep of a friend. It’s really something that could catch on. I know when I posted on Facebook earlier I had a friend jump in and say it’s a great idea and that she’s going to do it as well.

Making Cookies SpreadCheer

The kids and I went to Walmart and picked out three types of Betty Crocker cookies to bake and bring to friends. They had such fun baking the cookies and being the taste testers. Little Quinny even helped out making the cookies. She loved to watch the mixer make the cookies and she got to help criss-cross the peanut butter cookies with the help of her siblings. We made peanut butter, sugar, and chocolate chip cookies. We didn’t do any fancy recipes or shapes with them because not only am I 15 days away from having a baby, but our dog of 15 years died yesterday. I have to say that this day has totally helped me, though. I really enjoyed secretly dropping off cookies to friends’ houses. I think I’m going to pick up some more cookie tins and do this for a few more friends because it just felt good!!


A few hours after getting home I got a text from one friend saying that she was having a blah day at work and it was such an awesome surprise to come home to and that it made her day brighter. Another friend texted and said “I think someone tried to leave me cookies, but the squirrel ate them!” The cookies were in a plastic tin and tied closed! I would have never expected a squirrel to steal my cookies!! SpreadCheer Doorstep Join in and #SpreadCheer in your neighborhood!

About Paula

Paula Krueger considers herself a “baby “chef, not because she cooks for babies, but because she’s still learning how to cook. She started this blog after taking Wilton method classes and at that point was more interested in baking. She’s since become more interested in learning to cook as her family has grown. She also covers product reviews and travel as well.
