cookie baking with Cate

Cate and I made her very first batch of Christmas cookies this morning – Peanut Butter Blossoms (recipe here). These were classic in our house when I was growing up.

Cate helped me dump the ingredients into the mixer, but the real fun came after that. She got to help with several “messy” steps.

I formed the dough into balls; Cate rolled them in sugar and placed them on the cookie sheet.

There is sugar all over the dining room floor now.

She also unwrapped the chocolates for me…until she decided to eat them instead.

She got about 2 dozen unwrapped before she started to eat them.

Then we both pressed the kisses into the freshly baked cookies.

The finished product.

After they cooled a few minutes, it was time to enjoy.

“Thanks for the cookie, Mom.”

“Hey, there’s melted chocolate on here!”

“Mmmm. Tasty.”

    That is SO cute!!! I really can’t wait to bake cookies with my future little kids. Every time I see teeny tiny, kid-sized cookware, I always want to buy it…

    Yes, I do wonder what “it” was. I know it wasn’t me though ;0) I’m betting that he was too hung up on his ex-fiance, or new girl or whatever and didn’t have the guts to tell me, so he just didn’t ever call! I know..I wouldn’t want to be his fiance either..sometimes I just want to tell her what he did and warn her about him!
