For the past couple years I’ve tried to do some kind of holiday baking with my littlest niece. I see quite a bit of myself in her. We’re crazy, loud, and love doing homework and crafts. Just your typical overachieving creatives with the same eyes. Since we’re so similar I know that having this time together to do some baking is as important to her as it is to me – even though she’s only 6. But this year I decided to join in with Betty Crocker and #spreadcheer to our fellow neighbors and friends.
Amauri – my niece – wanted to make some chocolate chunk cookies, and I wanted peanut butter. After heading to our local Walmart to check out the selection we decided the easiest thing to do would be to combine the two into one cookie. Everybody loves chocolate and peanut butter together – even grandpa who doesn’t like chocolate – so our mixture would be perfect for our #spreadcheer boxes. We had so much fun baking the cookies, making a mess, getting them all together in brown paper packages, and then cleaning the mess up – because that’s the kinda girls we are!

We’re also the kinda girls that like to bake a lot of things all at once. So our friends got some blueberry muffins, some fun holiday napkins, and of course betty crocker cookies with lots of chocolate chunks. That big smile on her face never left as we walked to our neighbors door to deliver their packages. I love seeing her being able to create art, memories, and whatever else she wants.
