For the first time ever, my son decided that he wanted to make and decorated sugar cookies this year. I was ecstatic! Although I can get him to help me out in the kitchen occasionally and make a few dishes on his own, he definitely likes to eat rather than “create”.
We went to the market, bought sugar, jimmies, sprinkles and icing. One thing we couldn’t find were cookie cutters. All of mine were back at home, and my parents didn’t have any. I was too lazy to drive all the way to the mall, so we tried a few markets before my dad had the idea of trying the dollar store. What luck! We found a pack of six cookie cutters in various shapes for you guessed it, a dollar!
I can’t remember the last time I had so much fun with my son in the kitchen. Turns out he’s a natural with using decorators icing. As we ate the cookies, he smiled with each bite, savoring his baking accomplishment.
