That’s how Otu (My 2 yr Old son) was counting cookies by watching a “counting for kids video” running on TV. Suddenly, I started hearing “Cookies, Cookies…. Mamma….I want cookies”.
First it was just Otu, and within seconds two more monsters Tisha and Renne joined him. Ratio of Power just got shifted to 3:1, in fact 3:0, because, I don’t have any say, when all three kids unite against me 😛
Only reasonable thing to do next was to convince them that they will shortly receive some cookies. On that note, I was wondering why do kids always want that particular food item, which just got out of stock. :O
So, I went ahead and made some plain chocolate chip cookies. But, nothing is plain when it comes to cooking. Problem being, I try something new every time I make something. So what new now? Well, you have to read more to know that.
Here is the simplest Recipe for chocolate chip cookies.
But, what was new that I talked about? Well, it got more to do with presentation.
So, instead of chocolate, I used butterscotch morsels, for the one thing.
Next to do was use shredded coconut. For this, roll your small cookie dough into shredded coconut, and then bake.
Third, I used my pineapple jam, as filling. Just placed a half spoon of it in the middle. Baked and done.
Fourth, I used chocolate syrup to do some fancy work on some of the plain cookies.
Fifth, did some mix n match.
After 10 minutes, Otu and Tisha were jumping and clapping seeing their cookies in different flavors. Renne as usual has by now forgotten about the cookies, and was busy destroying one of my book. Next mission, save the Books.
P.S. half of the cookies were finished in an hour 🙂
