Today Lanyardlady had a Cookie Baking Day with her daughter. You can read about it here and she's included a wonderful recipe for Cranberry White Chocolate Cookies too.
After reading about her day I decided to tell you about the last time I baked a cookie.
When we returned from Branson last Sunday afternoon G2 asked me to help him make a model of a plant cell. We tossed around ideas of materials to use. Play Dough was mentioned, styrofoam was another consideration, but in the end cookie dough and candies won out.
G2 called his mom to see if she had a roll of cookie dough (we had to get it done Sunday night and so pre-made cookie dough would be a big help). She didn't have a roll of cookie dough but she did have a package of Gingerbread Cookie Mix. He ran home to get it while I pulled sprinkles, regular and mini M&Ms, orange slices, and sliced almonds out of the pantry and some left over frosting out of the refrigerator.
G2 put together some labels using toothpicks, papers printed with the cell part names and tape while I mixed up the cookie dough. Once the cookie was baked and cooled, we went about putting it altogether.
G2 received an A on the project and he told me some of the kids in his class enjoyed taste-testing his plant cell model. Much better than styrofoam or Play Dough, I'd say!
I've also got more cookie baking coming up this week!
