My toddler loves to help out in the kitchen, and I wanted to find a simple cookie recipe for the two of us to make one afternoon.
This was a great choice because I had all the ingredients on hand, and it wasn’t very time consuming (a good thing when you have a 2-year-old’s attention span to deal with).
These cookies turned out thick and chewy and delicious! We used a cookie scoop to get them all the same size. My dough was a little crumbly, and it was messy to keep beating it with the hand mixer, so I just smushed it together a bit with my hands and it was fine.
We brought these over to a friend who has 8-week-old twins, and she was thrilled to have something so tasty to snack on. It got 4 big thumbs up from her toddler, too. This is definitely a good, easy recipe to keep around for a quick cookie fix!
