Sometimes I like to keep things simple in my kitchen, especially during the holidays! Today, I'm sharing one of my easiest cookie recipes.
One of my favorite store bought cookie mixes is Betty Crocker's Gingerbread Cookies. You can find the mix on the shelves during the holiday season.
A little secret about me is I'm not a big fan of rolling and cutting cookie dough and definitely don't have the patiences for decorating individual cookies, so I decided to make Gingerbread Cookie Bark. This recipe is quick and easy to make. It's perfect for the holidays. Even those of you who claim to be “non-bakers” can make this recipe. Trust me! Your party guests and cookie eaters will be impressed. So sign up for those cookie exchange parties this year, put on your prettiest apron and lets whip up this delicious treat!
Begin by preparing the cookie dough according to the directions on the package. It says to stir but I always give it a quick mix in my Kitchen aid mixer.
Then press the dough onto your prepared baking sheet. I found that it was easier and much quicker to roll out the dough using my rolling pin. If you do this just make sure to sprinkle some flour on the dough and the rolling pin because the dough is very sticky.
Next, bake it for 10 minutes or until the edges are set. Let the cookie bark cool completely.
Then melt the vanilla chocolate bark according to the package and spread it over the bark. You can also use regular vanilla frosting too. Sometimes I just buy the vanilla cream cheese frosting from the store to make things even easier!
Lastly, add your sprinkles. Once the topping has cooled break the bark into medium sized pieces and enjoy!
Not bad huh? This bark is so delicious people will think you worked in the kitchen for hours.
