I was challenged to switch it up this holiday season with Unilever Spreads instead of using my normal butter or margarine options when baking some yummy treats. My son wanted to make some molasses cookies for his Christmas Party and the kids wanted chocolate chip cookies for snack at home, so we headed out to get I Can’t Believe it’s Not Butter! from our local Walmart.

Unilever Spreads Holiday Challenge

The daughter had a great time using I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter! for her chocolate chip cookie baking the other night before Christmas arrived. It was easier to use than our sticks of margarine we have used previously and appeared more smooth than options we had tried in past with our baking attempts.

Making Molasses Cookies

Let’s see, so the next time we baked before Christmas was the molasses cookies for my six year old’s class party the day before school break. They came out so soft and delicious, whereas in past I have had a hard time getting cookies to be the right texture of softness while still being fully cooked.

    The first recipe that really caught my eye was the one for the Peanut Butter Pie Bars, then I kept looking and found the Oatmeal Cranberry Cookies. I make cookies like these with Craisins, and am going to try this recipe, but I’m substituting the pecans with almonds (because I have tons and just blistered my fingers with the nutcracker cracking a huge bag of whole almonds).
