I bake… a lot. And, I enjoy baking. And, I enjoy eating baked goods. But sometimes I’m just too busy or too beat!
Last Saturday, my son wanted cookies. Normally, I would jump to it and use the excuse of my son wanting cookies to gobble a few myself! But, I was tired and had a lot to do, so I told him to ask his sister.
I was so impressed… My girl didn’t even ask for a recipe! She grabbed her i-pad, decided on lemon frosted cookies, picked lemons out back, made the cookies 100% on her own, let them cool, made the frosting… seriously, my only job was taking them out of the oven because our oven is kind of high.
I don’t know whether it was because I didn’t have to make them, or because I was so proud, or if she really did find an incredible recipe, but they were the BEST cookies! I can’t (won’t), tell you how many I consumed. (It’s a good thing I jog!)
She had so much fun that she decided she would bake every Saturday. She already found her recipe, and I am already drooling over the pumpkin butter thumbprint cookies she intends to make this Saturday!
What a blessing…. thank you, Allison!
