Baking with kids: Cookies

#cookies for #kids

 

When kids are on their holidays they always demand sweet things don’t they? The “Mummy please can you make me some cookies/muffins/ice cream etc. I can help!”

And you are like me the mother of a 5 year old you know that the help is not there for long – they get bored fast bless them. This time around she even help for longer and these cookies actually took longer than expected because her little sister wanted to participate as well so I end up holding her in my arms.

This is a recipe we always use and is just great as a base! You can even add cacao if you want to make them chocolatly! This time around Kara wanted little chocolate pastilles in them so I let it be her way. After all they are the ones eating them mostly! Oh and their father and grandparents!

Now it is easy don’t you think? Below are a few more pictures with my little girl in action:

    I have to make some similar ones with my daughter. She’s 2 and loves helping me in the kitchen. I usually give her some of the cookie dough and she plays with it and we end up with her biscuits and my ones!
