Cooking Up Some Holiday Fun!

Bradly Cookie
When families get together, adults and children most often end up in the kitchen.  Children love to get involved and help “cook.”  This time of year, making holiday cookies is a perfect way to spend an afternoon in the kitchen with your little helper.   Here is a simple sugar cookie recipe for kids of all ages.

1 cup softened butter or margarine
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups of flour
2 teaspoons baking powder

Preheat oven to 400°

1.  In a large mixing bowl, cream the butter, sugar, egg and vanilla extract until blended.

2.  Add flour and baking powder, mix well.

3.  You can make traditional sugar cookies by scooping out teaspoons of dough, roll them into balls and flatten with a fork.  Or, you can roll out the dough to use cookie cutters. Then, sprinkle with colored sugar or sprinkles for added fun!

4.  Bake 7 – 8 minutes until just starting to brown around the edges.  Makes about 3 dozen cookies.

Have fun and happy holidays!

Now It’s Your Turn:  What does your child like to help you “cook” in the kitchen?
