331. Baking cookies [SBL]

Another activity on our Summer Bucket List was baking cookies. I'm yet to find the 'perfect' recipe, but I'm having fun trying! I decided to get Daniel in on the action, he loves 'helping' at the moment, and doing whatever I'm doing! I thought about using a packet mix, but prefer baking from scratch and decided a little more mess wouldn't hurt! Daniel helped me find each ingredient, and pour it into the weighing scales. When Daniel's a little older we'll talk about weighing and measuring in more detail, cooking is a great maths activity, but it would be over his head right now. Daniel liked the tipping and mixing the best, and was very gracious at turn-taking with me to get things done. Actually, he liked stealing the chocolate chips the very best! He was so proud of himself, he couldn't wait to try them (& exclaim "yum yum yum!") and told everyone we saw that we'd made "coo-coos"! I loved including Daniel in something I love to do too, it was great fun! Next we're going to make cupcakes!

1 egg
1 tbsp vanilla essence
2 cups of plain flour (256g)
1/2 tsp baking powder

1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees centigrade.
2. Cream the butter and sugars.
3. Add the egg and vanilla essence.

Lots of Love
