I’m not a baker and I don’t actually like baking, but I wanted to try making cookies with Ella. Seeing her play with the light clay yesterday made me think she’s ready for some real dough mixing.
I googled a recipe for “easy cookie mix” and headed to the shops this afternoon. It gave me and Ella the chance to have 20 minutes just us two without Myles. We left him at home napping with grandma.
As I was going through the aisles picking out my ingredients I came across the “Betty Crocker Chocolate Chip Cookie Mix” costing £1.79….. urrrr SOLD! All the ingredients separately would cost £5+ Let’s be honest, this was totally the easy way out of baking. All I needed to do was add water and pop them in the oven. Sounded perfect to me.
I told Ella we were going to make cookies today. She was so excited but I don’t think she knew what I was talking about, she just kept saying “cookiiiieeessss”. 😂 When we got back from the shop, it was as easy as preheating the oven, pouring the mix into a glass bowl, handing Ella a wooden spoon and adding water a tablespoon at a time. 15 minutes later we had cookies!
The end result…. yummy easy peasy cookies that Ella really enjoyed making. Next time we’re going to make some home made play dough. Just need to get to the big supermarket so we can pick up some food colouring. 👍🏽
