Jimmy was away a couple weeks ago and on Sunday I wanted to have one on one time with kid. They each got to choose what they wanted to do. Lele wanted to make bracelets. Isabella wanted to clean and organize her room, so we could decorate for Christmas. JJ wanted to bake cookies and chose pumpkin chocolate chip cookies.
So he helped me create this recipe. He knew he wanted pumpkin, oatmeal and chocolate chips. I asked if he wanted to me to brown the butter or just use soften butter. He chose brown butter. So off we went on baking these cookies. He was a great helper and did a great job at mixing the dough. He struggled with scooping the dough, but that does take time to learn. I probably also need to find a better cookie scoop. He tasted the dough and cookies, he absolutely loved this recipe, The girls gave this recipe two thumbs up too.
I encourage you this Fall and Christmas Season to get in the kitchen and do some baking. With or without kids, it can definitely be fun.
