The Theme is Baking!

Last week and this week the theme is "Baking"!  Note to self: Do not schedule baking week in August, it is very hot in August and the oven should not be turned on for that length of time when it is this hot!

Anyway, last week we made peanutbutter cookies from my Betty Crocker's Cooky Book.  They are very good, not perfect, but very good.  The important part was that they were easy enough for the kids to be involved in every step.

Betty Crocker's Cooky Book

Step 1: make cookie dough.  If you have several young children helping with this then you will be unable to take pictures.  But it's peanutbutter cookies, not rocket science, you don't need pictures.

Step 2: Use a spoon to scoop out the dough,

Step 3:  Roll into a ball

Step 4:  Dipp fork in sugar

Step 5:  Make crisscross pattern on the cookie, don't press too far though or the cookie will burn!

Step 6:  Bake for a couple minutes less than recipe says, and let cool on the cookie sheet for about 5 minutes before removing to cooling rack.

Step 7:  Feed to cute little blue-eyed boys.

This week we will be making sugar cookies and decorating them with Royal Icing!  I predict much mess so we'll see how I do with taking pictures!

By the way, I am still on the lookout for the perfect sugar cookie recipe, let me know if you have one!  I want to make sugar cookies that taste great even without icing!

Looked like fun. Did you send some home with the kids.
You know grandmas would look cute eating yummy cookies but not as cute as Little man. Too precious. Sweet Pea looks like she was taking it very seriously.
