Today Melanie brought Maddy, Noah, Jack & Luke to our house to make Christmas cookies. Luke didn’t actually help but he did sample the finished product!
I have very fond memories of making cookies with my own kids…the cutout kind. The cookies, not the kids. :) I remember how they would put sprinkles on them until you could hardly even see the cookie. I liked the iced kind, but the kids really liked those sprinkles!
Making cookies with my grandchildren was very special. They did a great job, too! Maddy and Noah completely made the Snickerdoodles. I gave them a little guidance and information but that’s it!
Jack and I worked together on the Christmas cutout cookie dough. He measured all the flour himself, 1/2 cupfuls at a time and placed it in a big pile on the waxed paper. He really loved cracking the egg! (By the way, the lovely cobalt blue Kitchenaid Artisan mixer is my early Christmas present!)
The kids worked hard, the cookies were delicious and beautiful…it was a good day.
