In my opinion, chocolate cookies are the answer to most of life questions. My oldest, Emily, has decided that this summer she wants to learn to make chocolate chip cookies all by herself. She is four and I love her.
Well, as you may remember from this post, my niece showed you how to make some delicious brookies! When we watched the video Emily told me that she wanted to make a cooking video for grandma's blog too! I asked her if she wanted to make a video of herself making chocolate chip cookies and she was all in. Thus it was that a new series was born, "Baking with kids."
I've been baking with Emily since she was about a year and a half, in fact, here is a collage of photos of some of our previous baking adventures.
Teaching your kids how to cook is just so valuable. It's a great intro into math and science for kids, plus it teaches them practical skills. Someday, Emily will make family dinner once a week. Someday even later she will leave home and I know she'll be able to fend for herself and not starve to death. Plus, once she learns how to make chocolate chip cookies by herself, I know she'll know the solution to life's problems.
So, enjoy my cutie pie teaching you how to bake cookies. I WOULD suggest using the recipe measurements below rather than what she says in the video. She is cute, but she is still learning how to make chocolate chip cookies.
