I love sweets, they get me through the day. I do not claim to be a health nut in any sense, although sometimes I think I should take it a little more seriously…someday. Anyway, one of my favorite things to do is make cookies. I love the smell that it emits in the house, I love how delicious they are coming out of the oven, and I love the process. So, here is Allie’s steps to make delicious cookies.
1.) First–you need to round up a little bit of help! Professionals work best:)
2.) Make it easy! Especially when you are working with such qualified help!
3.) Stirring/mixing..many people take this for granted, but this is where you add in the extra love:)
4.) Into the oven they go!
5.) Make it festive and fun, especially around holidays! What a great way to include the kids. Although I do suggest the adults spread the frosting, a little less messy that way!
6.) The reward…
Plus…you get a cute decoration for a couple of days…or hours…or however long they last in your house:)
Okay, on a serious note, I really do like to bake homemade cookies…but with kids these are the perfect option. I think it’s great to get kids in the kitchen at a young age and start teaching them, they are really life skills that they will use for a long time, even if right now it is only dumping the oil or flour:) They will progress, and they love doing it!! So, set aside your clean kitchen and welcome the mess! Sometimes the process is just as good as the end result:)
