This weekend, how about having fun baking with your kids? You don’t need to enroll yourself and your kids to a children’s baking class to experience the joys of baking together. You can do this right in the comfort of your own home, by yourself, with this easy does it recipe as your guide.
Then, you can also, maybe, make a video of the same just like what I did in the video that my kids and I prepared, to show you how you can bake your own Almond Cookies with the little ones lending a hand. For that, you will need a camera. A tripod will be nice to have too.
To start your good times in the kitchen, all you need to know is what’s outlined below.
2 1/2 cups Flour
1 cup Sugar
1/2 teaspoon Baking Powder
a pinch of Salt
1 Medium-Sized Egg, beaten
2 teaspoons Almond Extract
1/2 lb Butter
Whole and unsalted almonds
Aluminum trays, not greased
To prepare the batter:
1. Mix all the dry ingredients first.
2. Blend in your beaten egg.
3. Add the almond extract.
4. Incorporate the butter well into the mixture.
5. Drop a spoonful of the mixture onto your tray to form rows. Leave enough space for your cookies to expand.
6. Press one almond or two on top of each formed mixture.
Pre-heat your oven for 15 minutes on 350 F. Then bake each tray for about 15 minutes at the same temperature. Do not cover with foil. Transfer your cookies on to a screen and allow to cool to give it time to harden.
No fuss baking, right? It’s just the perfect activity that you and your kids can do on rainy days when it’s impossible to have a good time outdoors. Take the fun to the kitchen. I promise you, those bagets (kids) will be more than happy to help out.
