    Cookie time

    Well, we kind of missed the boat on making Christmas cookies before, well… Christmas. So instead we made New Year’s cookies. Making dough was a bit more than I wanted to handle with two toddlers, so we opted for the easy approach: store bought cookie dough.

    S and K had a fabulous time rolling out dough and stamping it with cookie cutters.

    In the end the cookies didn’t really look like the shapes they came from. Really they looked like big sugar blobs. Also they tasted pretty bad, which, to be honest was a good thing. They made their way to the trash in the end, vs. my belly (and later my thighs). We had a great time though, and this has sparked a whole new Mommy/G cooking duo. We’ve since made pancakes (a breakfast win) and pizza (also a win).

    Here are some pics from our cookie makin’ adventure. Yes, the background looks like a mess, but I needed to get the counters cleaned up from the reach of toddler fingers. Knives and 2 year olds don’t really mix ya’ know.

    Cookie stamping is serious business

    We kinda had to teach them that you couldn’t just lift the cookie cutter and push it down over the same spot all over again.

    K, hard at work

    So this is a rolling pin, eh?

    This is the face of a girl who’s not afraid to get her hands dirty. Or her eye-brows 🙂

    What? Do I have something on my face?

    Our cookies. Or cookie blobs.

    Enjoying the fruits of their labor.

    Cookie making time was promptly followed by two toddlers who ran circles around our house. I’m really not kidding. From the living room, through the kitchen, into the dining room, then back in the living room. And round and round it went. Note to self: next batch of cookies is getting baked in the morning 🙂

      What a precious moment! It looks like so much fun! I didn’t do anything nearly as exciting as that! Cooking with little ones is a pleasure! Thanks for sharing! I usually start with something simple like pudding! I agree… they should have frosted them… I think that will be next time! Of course they would probably run more circles after, and not as many would end up in the trash!
