Peanut Butter Cookies
I have an adorable story to tell you. About a month ago, while I was at school, my hubby called me and told me that little man was asking for cookies. When hubby told him that there were no cookies in our cookie tin, which is where I store homemade cookies, little man brought him in the kitchen and told him to make cookies.
It needs to be mentioned that my little guy is spoiled. Every time he wants cookies, I quickly whip up some. I can safely say that kids of bloggers are pretty spoiled with homemade treats and mine is no exception.
Well, little man couldn’t understand why daddy couldn’t just whip up some cookies and I didn’t have time to walk him through it over the phone while I was at school. After that, I needed to teach hubby how to make our favorite cookies.
Oatmeal and peanut butter are some of our favorite cookies and peanut butter cookies were a little easier. No mixer required, ready in about 30 minutes and taste fantastic!
One evening, when were were all home, I set out to teach them how to make cookies. I gave them my recipe and stayed in the kitchen, just directing them and taking pictures. They did so well!
Looking at this collage of my boys making cookies, PLEASE excuse the messy kitchen. I had to pull out all the ingredients for them readily available and my kitchen is teeny-tiny.
Normally, only one person can cook in there due to the lack of space. I even trip over the cat who can’t realize that middle of the floor is not the place to sit in a 5×5 kitchen. But boys did great, even in a tiny kitchen, even with my old beat-up oven.
