Over the past few weeks, my son has taken a huge interest in being in the kitchen with me. From preparing his snacks to cooking dinner, he loves pushing his step stool up to the island in order to watch me at work in the kitchen. I’ll even let him stir mixtures and pour in ingredients.

I believe that cooking with kids is extremely important. The end result is a dish that the whole family will love and that will give your child so much pride and a huge sense of accomplishment. Another bonus? Kids are more likely to eat what they make and become more adventurous about trying new foods.

I wanted to introduce him to baking so I grabbed the Bob’s Red Mill Organic Unbleached White Flour from our pantry. Bob’s provides premium baking flours, no matter what kind of diet you follow. Bob’s Organic Unbleached White Flour is freshly milled from Organic hard red wheat. Both the bran and the germ have been removed leaving the endosperm that is made into white flour. It is not enriched with any additives.

Plus, this is the same high protein flour used by professional bakers and produces high, well-textured loaves of bread equally as well as it produces light, airy baked goods … in other words, this flour is the flour to use. Trust me, you don’t have to have a lot of ingredients to have food taste good. You just need a few good ingredients (like Bob’s) and you’ll have a dish your family will love.

When my three-year-old son woke up from his afternoon nap, I sat down and asked him, “Do you remember helping me stir the cookie ingredients?” He shook his head up and down. I replied, “Well, the cookies are ready. Here, try it.” His reaction was priceless. His eyes grew as big as saucers. I asked, “Do you like it?” He enthusiastically shook his head and immediately asked for a second cookie. He savored every morsel of the cookie … as did my husband and myself.

I love that this recipe only requires a few ingredients and steps in order to achieve a fantastic result. This is the perfect cookie recipe to always have on hand when baking with kids (they will love flattening the cookies). I can’t wait to have my son help me make this recipe again when we celebrate spring holidays such as Easter and Mother’s Day.
