Monday is Memorial Day and as a homeschool family I use every opportunity to teach my kids about what is happening.  Miss. K knows a little about what Memorial Day represents and she was so excited when she saw me brining out the blue and red sprinkles, she instantly asked, “Are we making flag cookies?”

I came across this sugar cookie mix last Christmas and my kids loved it so much and whenever we come across the mix in the store I am always bombarded begging me to buy it.

It’s so simple! Seriously.

1 bag of Pamela’s sugar cookie mix

1 pastured raised egg

8 tablespoons of pastured butter, softened

Frosting (optional)

THAT’S IT! Seriously how easy is that?

My kids were very nice today as there was no fighting for who gets to do what.  We started by Miss. K pouring in the mix into the bowl.

Then Mr. H broke the egg.  I am so proud of him, this was his first time he got to break the egg and he did not get any shell in the mix!

I added in the butter.

Then the kids took turns mixing it.

Once I took over, then I found them licking the bowl….nothing new there 🙂 Mr. A did so well in his car walker while we were cooking! And he definitely wanted in on the bowl licking..soon buddy, soon.

I placed the mix into the fridge for about an hour then I placed the dough onto a pan.  I first put them in balls then smashed them before I put them into oven.  Place in a 350 degree oven for 8-10 minutes (or until the edges are golden brown)

Then cool for about 10 minutes before you add the frosting. I did not have time to make my normal frosting so I bought some this time.

Then the kids got to decorate their cookies which lasted longer than it took them to eat them.

I hope you and your family have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend and I hope you and your family stay safe.
