Ok, so Evie is home for the summer and the challenge has been how to keep this hyperactive child entertained without setting the house on fire, taking candy from strangers, or getting picked up by the police. Yesterday we baked cookies from the 1957 cookbook (which is in reprint) Betty Crocker’s Cookbook for Boys and Girls. Evie received the book from my mom for her birthday. The book has lots of cute ideas. My mom said she had the same book when she was growing up and she learned to cook from it. My mom is an awesome cook, so I thought this was a great idea. Teach this kid to give me a break in the kitchen!!!
We made Paintbrush Cookies. It’s a simple dough recipe you roll out and cut with your favorite cookie cutters. Then you take an egg yoke, mix it with 1/4 tsp water and divide it into separate cups and add desired food coloring. Paint the food coloring onto the cookies before they are baked, add sprinkles and pop into the oven! Ready in about 8-10 minutes. Picture time!
We had a great time. Come over and make some cookies with us sometime!
