If you've followed my blog for very long, you know that I love to bake. Cookies, cakes, pies, casseroles, muffins...well, mostly cookies. They're kind of my thing. That's why I'm so excited about the Country Crock® So Much Good Happens When We Bake campaign, a family-centric promotion celebrating family togetherness in the kitchen and around the dinner table.
The Country Crock® brand celebrates baking; and is it any wonder? It's the perfect ingredient for super chewy cookies, creamy mashed potatoes, your favorite casserole recipes and more! Country Crock® knows the time we spend in the kitchen with our families is about more than the food we're baking, it's about spending time together as a family, bonding and teaching our kids the values that will take them far in life: patience, togetherness and sharing.
The Country Crock® So Much Good Happens When We Bake campaign wants to bring families together in a fun and unique way - they went to the NYC Tri-State area to surprise moms with special cookie cutters created by their children, just in time for Mother's Day! The cookie cutters were based off of drawings that the children made in the store and created by a 3-D printer right there while they watched!
With the help of a friendly grocery store, Country Crock was able to share with unsuspecting families the good that happens, when we bake. All that was needed were a few colored pencils, the modern magic of a 3D printer, and the reminder that watching a child’s imagination come to life is one of the special joys of baking together. Don't miss the original film in the #WhenWeBake series at WhenWeBake.com.
Not familiar with Country Crock®? It's a really versatile spread similar to butter, but it has less saturated fat than butter and 0 grams of trans fat per serving, no cholesterol and no partially hydrogenated vegetable oils. You can use it in dishes where'd you'd usually use butter, like casseroles, on top of veggies, and of course, in your baking! It's a great way to cut the fat in your favorite baked goods recipes without sacrificing tastiness.
