National Homemade Cookies Day: 6 fun recipes to bake with your kids
We don’t know about you, but we love any excuse to eat cookies! Today is National Homemade Cookies Day and it is not only an excuse to eat cookies, but also to bond with your children.
Baking with your children offers a fun environment for you to talk; you can share stories of baking with your family when you were little, talk about a TV show you all like or just catch up on each other’s lives. It is also a time you can bring up more serious topics like underage drinking or peer pressure. Talking about these topics while baking together makes the conversation a little less awkward since it is a more natural setting for a conversation than scheduling a time to sit on the couch and talk.
Cookie recipes for you and your kids
Classic Sugar Cookies
If you and your kids are more into playing with cookie cutters than baking something unique, this sugar cookie recipe is for you.
Peanut Blossom Cookies
The most difficult part about these cookies is debating whether the best way to eat them is all together or to eat the chocolate first!
Two-Bite Nutella Chocolate Cookies
Celebrate the season with these Halloween themed cookies.
If your kids like to lick the frosting off their desserts more than eating the actual baked good, this will be a kid-approved recipe.
No explanation needed. These just look drool-worthy.
If your kids are not fans of chocolate, it is never too early to make gingerbread cookies. You can just have them wearing a t-shirt and shorts instead of holiday colors.
Once your baking is complete, save some for dessert after your family dinner – another great opportunity to bond with you children that has been proven to be incredibly beneficial for youth of all ages.
