Think back to the time when you were growing up. It’s the holidays and you are in the kitchen with your parents or your grandparents. I know for me one of the holiday traditions I remember more was that I would end up baking up a storm with my grandmother every Christmas and inevitably we would turn to our Betty Crocker Cookbook for help!
One of the favorite recipes we made every year were peanut butter cookies with chocolate kisses in the middle. While you see many people making these over the holidays, they were never the same as when I made them with my grandmother. This was especially true when you got to eat them right out of the oven when they were warm and the chocolate would melt in your mouth. Talk about good!
This year we are continuing the tradition. My youngest daughter finally has started to show some interest in baking with me, so we decided to pull out the big red Betty Crocker Cookbook to find the peanut butter cookie recipe. We had all of the ingredients at home already so it was not hard to start this. I also found with the extra help from her that we were able to get done in no time, even though I was not trying to rush in any sense.
While this is only one of the traditions that I hope to continue doing, not only at the holiday season, but all year long there are many others that we continue to do as well. These traditions are important as they will help to continue to offer my kids and more the opportunity to pass on not only family history but shared memories too.
I am so glad that General Mills, and its family of brands including, Pillsbury, Betty Crocker and Chex has been around for 150 years, touching the lives of so many by making food people love and inspiring holiday traditions year after year. You see, the holiday season is all about celebration and everyone has someone in their lives who inspires and keeps their traditions alive, just like I am trying to do with my own family!
