After spending some time outside, whip up a batch of Earth Day Cookies. They are ridiculously easy to make with our AP Classic Creme Cake & Muffin Mix (#1823). And, it’s a great recipe to have the kids help with.

Earth Day Cookies

- 1/2 cup Kirkland Salted Sweet Cream Butter (#1723), softened
- 2 eggs
- 1 tsp Blue Cattle Mexican Vanilla (#6702)
