Baking has become a fun way to spend time some one on one time with each of our kids, but my oldest has gotten to the point where she doesn’t need help anymore and these cookies she made were delicious! She did a great job with no help from anyone. I love her independence in the kitchen and the delicious treats we all get to enjoy from it. These peanut butter chocolate chip cookies came out looking amazing, but they that tasted even better!
Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

This recipe is simple enough. Mix, scoop, and bake. Simple enough that my nine year old made them without help. There aren’t too many life skills that are as important as knowing how to cook, says a Momma who has to look up how to boil an egg when she makes potato salad. BUT in my defense, no one here eat boiled eggs so it’s not something I need to know how to do at the drop of a hat.
Getting our kids in the kitchen is one of our most favorite ways to spend some one on one time with them. My youngest, at almost 5, wants to be a taste tester and a chef when he grows up. And a superhero.
My kid knows her way around the kitchen, and knows to set the time for her cookies. Don’t they look delicious?!
