Baking for the holidays can be time consuming and frustrating if you don’t have a lot of time before the holidays arrive. Baking can be done a while before the holidays are coming up, all you have to do is put the baked goods in the freezer so they can be kept for a longer period of time. Unless you buy a fresh cake or pastry, you can make these for cake baking in the frozen section of your local grocery store. Those pies don’t get freezer burned and after they’re baked, they taste just like a homemade pie fresh out of the oven. Kids love helping out in the kitchen, especially around the holidays, so why not do something they can help out with? This way they can brag that they made the treats for the holidays.

Cookies are perhaps the best thing kids can make because they’re so easy and cleaning up isn’t that hard once the kids are done helping. Sugar cookies are the easiest to make and the receipt is not that difficult to make. After making the dough, you can give the kids a rolling pin to roll out the dough and make it flat so that they can later make cookies with the cookie cutters. The kids will most likely eat some of the dough, but after all that, let them put the cookies they’ve made on the cookie sheet, and then put the cookies in the oven to bake.

After the cookies cool for a while, now is the time for the kids to get a good sugar rush. You have to decorate the cookies with the powdered sugar icing you made. Frosting is just powdered sugar and a little milk mixed together to make a spreadable paste for the cookies. You can color the frosting with food coloring that you can get at any local grocery store. With all the different combinations kids come up with, no cookie will ever look the same. At least all the cookies will taste the same.
