The kids and I had a fun and unexpected cooking moment together this morning. We read the book "A Cow, a Bee, a Cookie and Me" by Meredith Hooper. We always have a huge stack of books checked out from the Birmingham Public Library System. This was just one I happened to pick up at some point. It's about a boy named Ben who is baking with his grandma. They talk about where each of the ingredients for Honey Cookies come from as they are making them...honey from bees, butter from cows, etc. At the end, the recipe is included. So when we reached the end of the book, I thought "why not?"
Time for a kid-friendly cooking adventure! Get ready for a mess!
I think their favorite part of cooking was tasting everything!
I've mentioned before that I'm not an excellent baker. Especially with cookies. Mine just never turn out looking right. However, this recipe was baking-impaired-friendly. It turned out great! The cookies turned out looking like cookies!!
My husband would say, "That bowl is in a precarious position!" ha!
Cold butter mixed with sugar would make a great weapon! Yikes!

After mixing the batter, form it into small balls and roll in a sugar/cinnamon mixture. That was my daughter's favorite step
Before baking... ...after.
And here's the recipe straight from the book:
Kids hard at work in the kitchen! My dream come true!
