Homemade Easter Cookies

O.K...maybe they aren't homemade unless you are like me and claim anything that you put into your oven to bake is homemade! :)

I supervised Molly placing the premade/precut cookie dough on the pan! Don't worry I made sure she didn't actually place her bare foot on the pan or in the cookie dough!

I think it is so cute to see the pride in her eyes. Yes, one day she will know that there is more to baking cookies, but I will save that for the grandma's to teach her. I wouldn't want to take that joy from them! ;-)

I am still doing cookies the same way for my little ones! It is all bout the fun of being together and sharing treats anyway!

Oh my gosh! Children in the kitchen! You are a brave, brave woman. The last time I allowed the girls to "help" me they were still in bumbos and held spoons to entertain themselves.

She is so cute! I have not been brave enough to let the little ones help in the kitchen yet.

Love her little face-- she knows she is such a big girl helping Mommy 'bake'. (and yes, they were cooked in your home, that definitely counts as 'homemade')

The pre-made dough is a good idea, maybe they could help with that.

Very cute! It took me a while to figure out how to involve the kids in real baking projects. We've got a system now where I measure out all the ingredients, and then they take turns climbing up the step stool to help dump them all in the bowl and mix it around a bit. They really enjoy it.

Cute! Her cute little foot could have touched cookie dough and we'd be none the wiser!

This is so cute!!! And I can only imagine how much fun you (and Molly!) must have had.

The last time my girls were in the kitchen with me was before Halloween...I'm hoping to do something Easter-y with them soon. We've been reading some books about Easter eggs and chocolate bunnies, so I think they'll be thrilled to get in on some action. :)

Oh, and I LOVE the idea about having the grandparents teach them about "real" cookie dough. GREAT idea! Bwahahaha!!!
