Cookies!

     I love making cookies with my kids. It's a great way to bond, and also a way for them to show their creativity. What I do is get a lot of cookie cutters, and edible decorations, and let them have fun making a mess. Here are some cookies that I made with my kids and the recipe.

 Ingredients:
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 large eggs
2 3/4 cups flour
2 cups butter softened
2 1/2 cup granulated sugar

Directions:

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a large bowl mix butter, sugar, egg and vanilla until creamy. In a medium bowl mix flour, baking soda and baking powder. Slowly add the flour to the sugar mixture. Roll out cookie dough into preferred thickness. Cut dough using any cookie cutter you like, place on a cookie sheet and bake for 8 to 13 minutes or until golden, let stand on cookie sheet foe two minutes before moving to cool on a wire rack.
                     Now be creative, have fun and make some memories.
