I try and do some cooking an baking with kids now and than. It’s a great way to learn patience, measurements, and just the way around life. Cookies are of course the best, because there is so much they can do-making the dough, rolling the dough, pressing the shapes – and they also get to decorate them once they are baked! What a joy!
Look what we were able to do this year!
We made the dough together and than rolled it out. I let the kids do as much as possible and we had lots of fun.
It is great to watch them when they try and choose all the cookie cutters we have, add things on top and just really enjoy themselves.
We also had Christmas music on the whole time, and had a little dance party every time in between when we had to wait for one batch to be done.
750 g flour
300g sugar (try using coconut sugar instead of white one)
4 egg yolks
1ts baking powder
a pinch of baking soda
Squeeze butter and flour together until it becomes all dry and dusty and there is no more bottle visible. Than add baking powder , vanilla and baking soda. In a separate bowl mix sugar and egg yolks. Also add the cream. Mix dry and wet bowls together and use your hands while doing it! It’s the most fun and the kiddos can join! Bake on 170 for about 11 min (depending on how thick you make the cookies, your owen …but the cookies should be pale when taken out).
Decorate them after they are completely cooled down. And don’t forget to eat as many as you can! You can also leave them plain, store them in a tin containers and enjoy them with family 😉⭐️
Until next time…
