Baking is Easy

For Christmas, Brooklyn received an Easy Bake oven.  Last weekend I had assured her that she could bring it over this weekend in one of those “yeah, yeah we can bake next weekend” moments.  Brooklyn is obviously related to elephants since she remembered and arrived yesterday evening with this.

On the menu for the evening – strawberry cookies with lemon frosting and chocolate chip cookies with chocolate frosting.

Oh yeah, she came too.

Brooklyn started to mix the dough and roll it into small balls.

While Kalea made the startling realization that she was upside down in her spoon’s reflection.

Once the balls were rolled, into the oven they went.

When it was time to make the frosting, we had a guest chef join us.

The cookies came out great and then it was time to move on to the chocolate chip cookies.

Brooklyn and Kalea mixed dough…

While Cole rolled the dough into small balls.

And then we waited…

Eventually Cole and Kalea decided to go upstairs to play with some toys.  Brooklyn stayed back to frost her cookies.

The cookies turned out pretty good, we sent Cole home with a couple (they are the size of a nickel/penny) and Brooklyn took home the rest. 

Overall, an easy baking time!
