So along with their chore chart this week, my kids could choose from a list of age-appropriate life skills to work on, and baking cookies is something 8-9 year olds can do. After buying peanut butter cups yesterday, I found this easy recipe on allrecipes.com (http://allrecipes.com/recipe/peanut-butter-cup-cookies/). I can hardly believe I've never made these before, or the similar cookies where you smoosh chocolate kisses into a oven-fresh cookie. No coring, and STILL a stuffed-in-the-middle treat. That rocks! ♥ Julie
And don't forget the best part of baking ... licking your fingers. Enjoy!
