Cookies And Kids

By Dana Goldberg

I don't know what it is but there are some smells that bring back fond memories and one of them is the whiff of a freshly baked cookie. I don't have a particularly sweet tooth and can actually survive without cakes or chocolates but once I am hit by that cookie smell I am taken to a warm and wonderful place. I want to enjoy the cookie all on my own and find myself a quiet place with a cup of my favourite coffee and prepare to be in heaven.

It isn't just eating a freshly baked cookie that is enjoyable but making them can be very satisfying too. Cookie baking can be great fun if you have young kids and that is probably where some of my earliest cookie memories come from. I remember how much I loved helping my grandma mix all the cookie ingredients together and then shape them on a baking tray before she put them in the oven. I felt so special when she let me lick the mixing bowl clean of the cookie mixture too! Anyway, the first time I suggested that my daughter could help me bake some cookies she was about four years old and her little face lit up. We made quite a mess I must be honest but we really had a great time together and the cookies didn't turn out all that bad either.

If you have young kids in your family then why not give cookie baking a try? You don't have to be a wonderful cook; in fact you can buy cookie mixes that you just have to add water to so you have more chance of baking great cookies. You could always buy some of the cookie dough that has become popular but I think that the mixing process is the best bit! Making different shapes of cookies and then decorating them afterwards is also something that most kids love to do. You might even think about giving some of these homemade cookies as gifts, especially if your kids helped make them. A cookie that was decorated by a grandchild for Christmas or any other special occasion is bound to be enjoyed far more than a store bought one.
