The Way to a Child's Heart....

I feel very strongly that childhood needs to be peppered with memories such as the smell of freshly baked cookies, milk mustaches, long days in the afternoon sun...Popsicles on the porch...summer fires and smores. Seriously, besides a sunny smile NOTHING will endear you MORE to a child than handing them a freshly baked chocolate chip cookie...still warm from the oven.
Well, allowing them to lick the spoon is pretty high up there on the list too. If it's a really special day they might even get the bowl - if mom doesn't clean it our first. :)


Princesses love cookies..especially with a glass of milk.

Brady is the master of the milk mustache. I love baking and then calling everyone to the table for a couple cookies and a glass of milk...such great bonding time talking, enjoying the afternoon sun shining in the window and hearing my littles laugh and lick their chocolate covered fingers. And then of course we had to read If You Give a Mouse a Cookie...our all time favorite read.




I used the recipe on the back of the Gold Medal Whole Wheat Flour but cut the sugar down a bit and added a cup of chocolate chips instead of a WHOLE bag like the recipe called for. They were plenty chocolaty...here's the recipe with my changes if you want to have a baking day of your own!
Chocolate Chip Cookies
1 cup of butter, softened
1/2 cup of brown sugar
1/2 cup of turbinado sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon of vanilla
Mix wet ingredients together and then add...
2 cups of whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon of baking soda
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1 cup of semi sweet chocolate chips
Bake for 8-10 minutes at 375 degrees...allow to cool for a minute before transferring to a cooling rack.
These turned out DELICIOUS for a whole wheat cookie.
