Ben and I had an extra day together last Friday - and we celebrated by making M&M cookies. Ben said if we were short on chocolate chips then M&Ms would do fine.
Ben is very good at measuring - he would say "scoop and level" every time he measured . . .
Adding ingredients . . .
Monitoring the mixer - he calls it a "maker" . . .
The maker is making dough . . .
We snacked a little from the bowl of M&Ms - every time Ben added another ingredient he ate one M&M . . .
Scooping the cookies out onto the pan . . .
And of course every little boy likes to lick the beater . . .
Ahhh, cookies and milk outdoors after a baking adventure . . .
Ben says that baking is hard work, but worth it - I agree . . .
