    Baking these adorable and easy Rainbow Chip Cookies with your kids is a great way for families to spend time together and enjoy a delicious treat!

    Getting creative in the kitchen was my daughters goal... and I am sure glad she did. These are delicious!

    I had a pretty specific goal yesterday… and that was to get work done. Lists were piling up, chores were not getting completed and I was motivated to change that.

    I started with the first item on my list, clean kitchen. It was pretty dirty and had not been organized for a good week, so took a full hour to do. During that time, Olivia was by my side saying things like, “I want to play outside” and “pick flowers mommy” and “cookies mommy” over and over again.

    My response was the same, “Not now honey! We will play later.” I was on a mission.

    Getting creative in the kitchen was my daughters goal... and I am sure glad she did. These are delicious!

    I started on my next task, get emails up to date and answered.

    I sat in front of my computer for 2 hours. Olivia was playing near me, rolling dice and reading her books, and often asking, “I want to play outside” and “pick flowers mommy” and “cookies mommy”.

    I finally made some headway on the email organization and checked my list for the next task.

    Laundry.

    I looked at it. Looked at Olivia. Then made the best decision of my day.

    I crossed it off my list and wrote, “Bake cookies with Olivia.”

    Getting creative in the kitchen was my daughters goal... and I am sure glad she did. These are delicious!

    You should have seen her face when I told her! She jumped up and down and screamed in delight and ran to get her apron. She knows the drill!

    I found Country Crock® Cookie Recipe that was designed to be personalized. (Not only was it easy for us to personalize, but it was an actual challenge from them… #MakeItYours. Love that!)

    So I put Olivia in front of the Sprinkles Cabinet and let her choose.

    She was drawn to the Rainbow Chips in the back, so that is what we went with.

    We had SUCH fun adding those sweet chips!

    Here is the recipe that we ended up with:

    Mini Rainbow Chip Cookies

    Rainbow Chip Cookies

        Ingredients

        • 1 c Country Crock® Spreadable Sticks or Tub, cold from the refrigerator
        • 1/2 c rainbow chips
        • 1/4 tsp. baking soda
        • 3/4 tsp. salt
        • 1 tsp. baking powder
        • 3 1/2 c all purpose flour
        • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
        • 1 egg yolk
        • 1 egg
        • 3/4 c firmly packed light brown sugar
        • 3/4 c granulated sugar
        • 1/2 c mini chocolate chips (I used semi-sweet)

        Instructions

        1. Preheat oven to 375°. Mix Country Crock® Spread, granulated sugar, light brown sugar, egg, egg yolk and vanilla in large bowl until well mixed. Stir in flour, baking powder, salt and baking soda until blended.
        2. Add your favorite mix-ins in any combination, and mix until every spoonful of dough has some of the delicious mix-ins.
        3. Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls on ungreased baking sheets 3-inches apart.
        4. Bake 10 to 12 minutes until edges are lightly golden. Cool 1 minute on wire rack; remove from sheets and cool completely.
        5. Add toppings and decorations if desired.

        There were two things I really wanted my personalized recipe to have:

        color

        quantity

        Getting creative in the kitchen was my daughters goal... and I am sure glad she did. These are delicious!

        The “color” issue was easily solved with the creative addition of rainbow chips.

        But why quantity?

        This was a bit selfish on my part. I knew that when Olivia finished her cookie she was going to look at me with her big blue eyes and say, “more mommy”? I just didn’t want to say no and have our moment ruined! So I made these cookies intentionally small so that when she did ask I could easily say YES! without guilt.

        So glad I got the opportunity to #makeityours with Country Crock®.

        Thank you so much for supporting the brands that support my blog! Country Crock and I teamed up to make the best recipe and I can’t wait for you to try it. While they did supply the base recipe, all of the opinions and text are mine.

        Baking cookies with your daughter is a much better way to spend your day than chores! What a fun memory!

        Making these today!! And the cookie dough – to die for. I think this is going to be my new ‘favorite chocolate chip recipe’!! So I see little cutie puts the decortaions on before they bake??

        I like to use butter when baking. Can I substitute the butter for Country Crock? I realize you support the brands, but just wondering. thanks!

        Don't Pass on Dessert!
