Springfield Public Schools will be back in session this week. That means we will see an increase in traffic in the mornings, as well as the early afternoons. Be prepared for some slow
Great Winter Weekend Activity
If you have kiddos you know that December doesn't just mean Holidays, but Holiday break. Here is fun, cute and yummy treat for you to make with the kids:
Christmas Crinkle Cool Whip Cookies
Serves: about 2 1/2 dozen cookies
1 box vanilla cake mix
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 tub Cool Whip
1 tsp vanilla
Red and green food coloring
1 cup powdered sugar
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a large mixing bowl, beat together the cake mix, egg, cool whip and vanilla. The dough will be thick and sticky.
Divide the dough in half and place one half in a second bowl. Add a couple drops of red food coloring to one bowl and a couple drops of green food coloring to the other bowl. Mix the food coloring into each half of the dough. Add more food coloring as needed until your desired color is reached.
Put the powdered sugar into a small bowl.
Use a small cookie scoop(or 1 tbsp) to portion the dough into the bowl of sugar. One scoop at a time, place the dough into the sugar and roll it around until it is completely coated. Place the dough ball onto the prepared baking sheet. Repeat with the remaining dough, leaving 2-inches between each cookie. (Seriously, the cookies spread A LOT.)
Bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until the cookies are set. The center of the cookie will still be soft, that's okay.
Remove from the oven and let cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes.
