Toddler Tollhouse Cookies


For the last two years I’ve been fitting in what little baking I do during my son’s naps and after bedtime. Waiting to start baking until 8 p.m. after a long day of chasing a toddler can be a little challenging. Last week I decided he was old enough to “help” mommy in the kitchen and see what it’s like to make cookies. I pulled up his little stepstool, got my ingredients and tools together, and said a little prayer that my kitchen wouldn’t be totally destroyed.

To my surprise, my son stood on his stool patiently while I creamed eggs and butter, sifted flour and leavening, and mixed it all together with a hand beater. He particularly enjoyed helping dump cups full of chocolate chips into the bowl, although at times I think he would have been just as happy to eat the measuring cups!

After scooping out the cookies we put them in the oven and watched them melt and mold into our Tollhouse treats.

We also had cookie dough left over, so we stored it in containers for freezing. I think after this experience I’ll be doing more baking with my son at my side.

    First off I want to say terrific blog! I had a quick question
    which I’d like to ask if you don’t mind. I was interested
    to know how you center yourself and clear your head before writing.

    I’ve had difficulty clearing my mind in getting my ideas out. I truly do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or hints? Thank you!
