When the kids are on holidays, I tend to bake for them as much as i can. It is also an avenue of bonding with them as we all tend to cook, bake and gist.
So many mommies can testify that cooking with kids is a great task because you will answer questions alot, give explanations to things confusing to the kids.
In as much as it’s a daunting task, its a great way to know your kids sense of reasoning, expressions and areas of interest. My kids have interest in cooking, Ooh they want to cook everything even at early stage, which is why I cook with them so they can learn fast.
And I so much love to bake snacks for my kids both for home use and school. This crispy butter cookies is one of the easiest cookies with less ingredients. Though I won’t deny the fact that is unhealthy when consumed regularly, but once in a while won’t hurt, right?
