Making Memories & Making Cookies...

My little baker decided to help me make some
 Snickerdoodle and Molasses cookies!
It is so much fun to make cookies with my boys.
MJ gets most excited when he can help me with any thing in the kitchen.
He loves to cook and bake and experiment!!
(Sometimes that can get a little messy)

He loves to roll the balls of dough into the sugar
and then when I'm not looking he pops one in his mouth.
He tells me "these are the best mom!"

Makes me feel good and happy deep down inside.
I love it when I can teach them how to measure out the ingredients
and then give them good directions on what to do next.

Some times, they look at me and just ask for the dough!
It must be a boy thing...HA!
Don't these boys know its a Math lesson in the making?
I'd rather do hands on Math any ol' day.
It's way more fun and very tasty too!

Today we made Snickerdoodles!

You can find the recipe HERE

I have been making this recipe for as long as I can remember.
And it's the best!

And we also made Molasses Cookies

You can find the recipe HERE

I always make double batches of everything
so I can share some with my Mom in Law, Roxy.
She loves any kind of cookie!!
I mean who doesn't, right?

And what goes great with a cookie or two?
A cup of Hot Coffee or Hot Tea
and a good friend to share it with!

Enjoy Your Day Friends!

Blessings & Hugs,

Love snickerdoodle cookies! My son loves the dough too! If he's around when I'm baking and putting them on the cookie sheets I'll notice empty spaces where I had already put some dough. He'll grab three at a time! Stinker. I always take a bit of dough too. That's part of the fun of baking right?! Have a great weekend!

What a blessed time it is to be able to share your love of cooking with your children! I remember doing that many times with my children, and when they are teens it pays off, cause if they are craving a cookie, they can make it themselves.. and I love that! I didn't know Roxy was your sweet mom-in-law, how awesome is that! Precious lady, love you both! :)

Dearest Amy, as I type this I can only say that you are a treasure and these photos are precious. I love it that MJ enjoys being with you in the kitchen.
You are also such a great baker and a cookie maker...
Thanks for always sharing your treats with us!
You are in my prayers daily!
Hugs, Roxy

I always love your cookies! I love how you have a little helper. I think David is going to be my little helper. He always wants to be in the kitchen when I am cooking. That’s so sweet that you make a extra batch for mom.
