Baking Cookies with Kelsey

Kurt is away on business this week and Kelsey is very sad about that. She wakes up crying for her Daddy and says she is "sad" and "hurts" for Daddy. We talk to him a few times each day to help her. He'll be home on Thursday. Kelsey loves to look at photos of herself on this blog, so I thought I'd post about baking Halloween Cookies.

First you start with your ingredients (hey, I have a busy toddler - I don't do scratch cookies anymore!)

Next find your toddler hiding in the living room, drinking her "Pablo sip" (yogurt smoothie) and wearing the Pampered Chef kids' apron you bought years ago!
Make sure you get TONS of the Sprinkles on one cookie...
Maybe chugging straight from the bottle is better?
Hmmmm....nothing says cookies like chugging sprinkles straight from the bottle
Note cool red flower hair bow on the arm...the epitome of style for toddlers :)

Keep pushing the cookie cutter into the same piece of dough many times...if once is good then six times is better!
Make sure you leave some of the black sugar you ate on your lips for effect

Show Mommy how much fun it is to eat all the sprinkles in the jar!
Sprinkles on the cookies?!? How'd that happen??

Bake at 350 for 8-10 minutes. When cookies are cool, pick all the sprinkles off, eating them and ignore the cookies at all costs, leaving them for Mommy and Daddy!

I have always said that sprinkles can fix anything. And I mean it.

I love, love, love, the chugging right from the bottle! Girl after my own heart!
