The kids get so excited when they find out this box has arrived. When their dad walks into the house with it they yell for me to hurry and get on my apron” its time to bake”. Then will fight over who gets to help in the kitchen. My 9 year old has been doing a lot of baking lately so I had to let my 13 year old do this one. These boxes are so easy that they could probably do it on their own. But, I like to supervise especially when a hot oven is involved. All the ingredients are pre-measured and pre- packaged with like items together.

The kids were especially happy to get his box. One of the ingredients was NUTELLA. And each and everyone goes crazy for that delicious chocolaty hazelnut spread.


NUTELLA APPLE BUTTER LINZER COOKIES



In our box we got these real cute and cozy socks. These socks go with the Christmas in July theme of their box. MSRP $14.99

My 9 year old decided that since his birthday is during the month of Christmas the socks were his to keep. He really loves them alot and keeps his pj’s up like that in order for everyone to see his cute socks.


Got this cute little cookie roller made with hard plastic. Looks and feels surprisingly sturdy. Worked real well and glided easy across the dough. MSRP $16.95.

Six strong plastic cookie cutters. You use the center of the cutters to make different shapes in the center of the linzer cookie dough. MSRP $17.99


You needed 6 oz of your own butter. Softened and cut into cubed. Then pour the sugar packet and mix.


Add one egg yolk and the vanilla packet. Mix as well.

Once you have the vanilla and egg yolk mixed add the flour packet. Mix until it becomes a nice dough ball. Then you will divide the dough into 3 sections. Wrap in plastic crap and place in the fridge for about 30 minutes.

After thirty minutes get one of the balls and use the cute little roller to flatten them out about 1/8 inch thick. Use the cookie cutter to cut out the front and back of the Linzer cookies. You then put them back into the fridge for five minutes. Take them out and then pop into a preheated over for about eight minutes.


Add some of the Nutella.

Then the Apple Butter



Put the top on to make a sandwich. You can also dust them with powder sugar but the kids just wanted to eat them.

The kids were happy to see that there was some extra nutella packets left. They also thought it fitting to use their Christmas cup with milk to enjoy these soft warm delicious cinnamon flavored cookie. They disappeared quickly and everyone agreed these were the best so far. And was something they would like to make again during the holiday season.

Took longer to make in comparison to the other boxes but so worth the work and the wait.

I ordered this subscription box through http://www.cratejoy.com. If you order through them you will get a discount on your first box. You can also go to the site directly http://www.freshbakedcookiecrate.com. I am not to sure if you get a discount if you go through them. They recently decided to “go green” so you will go longer get paper directions.They give you a link on the inside of the box to find the directions and details of what was in your box.

I recently posted an update on my first box regarding the silicon whisk. The silicone is coming off. But can still use it and I am sure when it all comes off you will still be able to use it. I am not saying this is a big issue and I most certainly will not be cancelling this box over it. I am just making it known to others. We totally love this box!
