Baking cookies together is a great holiday activity that can allow you to spend time with your children in a relaxed and fun way. Finding the right recipes for your cookie creations can be challenging, however. Your cookie recipes should be simple enough for even younger children to follow while offering the great taste you want from these popular confections.
Here are three types of cookies that you can bake with your kids for the upcoming holiday season.
Chocolate chip cookies
Brown and white sugar, butter, eggs and flour join chocolate chips to create a classic cookie you and your children will love making and eating. Vanilla extract, baking soda and baking powder are also important ingredients in these cookies. Combine the butter and sugar and add eggs and vanilla before introducing the flour, baking soda and baking powder for the best results. Your chocolate chips will be the last item added before popping these cookies in the oven and baking them for about 10 minutes. Let them cool and enjoy!
Sugar cookies are another popular cookie that can be sprinkled with coloured sugars or icing to suit your taste. Once again, eggs, flour, butter and sugar are among the primary ingredients for this holiday favourite. You can even use powdered sugar to keep your cookies from sticking to the rolling board or rolling pin for added flavour. Using raw sugar and a touch of cinnamon and vanilla can make your sugar cookies even more flavourful and delicious.
Oatmeal raisin cookies
For a healthier alternative to some of the Christmas classic cookies, oatmeal raisin cookies are a great way to add fiber and some healthy dried fruit to your holiday diet. Rolled oats and brown sugar are two of the secrets of delicious and chewy oatmeal raisin cookies. Soaking the raisins before adding them to the batter can also make these cookies even more delectable for holiday snacking. Using healthy ingredients can make your oatmeal raisin cookies taste great while providing solid nutrition for you and your family.
