February 24 "Yummy Cookies" Carrot Cake Cookies
It is fun baking with children. They want to do every part, lick every implement, and eat every bite. The enthusiasm is inspiring. And yet baking is not something we get to do every day. I don't want them to consume all of that sugar or fat. But when we bake we like to make Carrot Cake Cookies from our Sesame Street Yummy Cookies: Baking With Kids book. It has healthy carrots, nuts, and raisins and we usually replace half of the butter with applesauce. They satisfy the baking craving while still not being totally bad for you. So next time you have the desire to bake something yummy with your little one, try these cookies.
