What do you get when you give two delicious kids some flour, sugar, eggs and butter? Why a mess in the kitchen of course! Oh, and yummy butter cookies.

I got my kids a cookie baking set in Barnes & Nobles of all places. It came with a cookies and cupcakes recipe book, six shaped cookie cutters, a mini wooden rolling pin, and an icing dispenser. The set was on sale for $6.98 and I figured the kids will have fun with it. Boy did they have fun! We started with the easiest recipe (The one I actually had all the ingredient for).
4 oz butter, softened
4 oz (about 1/2 cup) sugar
1 egg
8 oz all-purpose flour

We mixed the melted butter with sugar, added an egg, flour and voila! We had dough! The kids looked very professional kneading the dough with flour on their faces. Once the dough was rolled out, kiddies made shapes with cookie cutters. They even invented some shapes of their own. It took about 8 minutes for the cookies to bake in our Toaster oven.
They were delicious! There's nothing like eating warm cookies right out if the oven. Now, the first thing kids ask me when coming home from school is "can we bake today?"
