Today we began making Christmas cookies. As I was taking pictures of A making the cookies I flashed back to him making cookies when he was barely one, in a little dishtowel apron with only a stripe of hair and a little green dinosaur shirt.
Flash forward to today:
My baby is now a three year old, who can reach the counter with his step stool and stir the cookie dough.
And tada…snickerdoodles! Notice how lovely they turned out. I attribute this to two things. One is packaged recipe (I do much much better with packaged recipes) and the other is silpat baking mat. It’s fabulous! And we added a little red sugar to the cinnamon sugar packet that came with the recipe for Christmas effect!
