Baking Cookies

Max is very helpful, he likes to be involved in any and everything.  This post is our second attempt at making chocolate chip cookies.  If you know me then you know I don't cook.  Stephen is the resident chef around here so it was really no big surprise when our first batch of cookies were inedible.  We tired again and they turned out pretty darn good!  Maxton was very involved both times and this was a great learning experience for him.  Here are all our ingredients laid out and ready to go.

Max liked "peeling the butter" this was great fine motor practice.  When cooking with toddlers the key is patience, letting them do things independently takes a little longer than just doing it for them.

Max loves the mixer.  He is all about machines of any sort.

He is getting better at cracking eggs too.  No shells in this batch.

"Can I eat a little chip?"

Turning the dough into balls was a big hit.

"They are puffing up in there!"

Licking the beaters and cleaning up while our cookies bake.

"These cookies are tasty."
