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.
