Gracie and I decided the other day to start our holiday baking. With her going to middle school and between my working almost every day at the school and then having to come and get things ready for dinner it does not seem that we never had enough time for anything much less baking. But I was recently sent a package from  Hodgson Mill for a sponsored post, so I decided this past rainy Sunday afternoon, Gracie and I would bake. If you are not familiar with Hodgson Mill. They are hosting a “Have a GRAIN Holiday” Recipe Contest!  That contest is the reason Gracie, and I started creating. I looked for something that we both could make and something that she could take the lead on as well. Out of my three girls, she is the one who loves to be in the kitchen. We decided that we were going to make the Gingerbread that was sent our baking kit. If you have never made gingerbread before, you need to. I can not begin to tell you how wonderful my house smelled while it was baking. We used this gingerbread as a base ingredient in our recipe. Here is what you need to make a gingerbread trifle.

This is also a quick and easy recipe to make with your children. Cook the gingerbread according to the package in an 8 x 8 dish. While the gingerbread is cooking, make the instant vanilla pudding and put in the refrigerator. Then after the gingerbread is done let it cool for a few minutes and cut it into small pieces.  ( The next step the size of the pieces depends on the bowl or dish you will be using to put the trifle together. I used individual sundae dishes to make this, so my portions are smaller. Just adjust the size according to the dish.)

You then place one piece of gingerbread in a sundae dish, place cut up strawberries on top of this, then layer with vanilla pudding, and then cool whip.

Repeat this step once more and then place one whole strawberry on top. The last step is to eat. These are so yummy and easy to make that your kids will be begging you to let them make more.
