7 Holiday baking shortcuts

  1.  Using a packaged oatmeal cookie mix add 1/2 cup of dried cranberries and 1/4 cup of dried orange peel
  2. If you use a packaged sugar cookie mix,, add 1/8 teaspoon of baking powder your cookies will come out better.  If you are using chocolate chip mix,add 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder.  You have no idea how old that package is, so you will have lighter cookies.  (I hate flat cookies.
  3. Using a package brownie mix?  Try adding Amaretto; just reduce the water by 2 tablespoons and replace it with the Amaretto or other liqueur. (I like Ghiradelli the best.)
  4. Reduce the number of shapes in the sugar cutout cookies; it’s easier to decorate.
  5. Sprinkles make everything better.
  6. Make a list check it twice going to the store multiple times does not save time.
  7. Check out the pinwheel recipe on this blog; it will save you a few hours.
