Now that it's getting colder, we are starting to think about the holiday season... baking and making treats as gifts or just for fun! Plus, November 21 is known as "National Gingerbread Cookie Day"...what a perfect time to bake them!
Charlsea and Brianne are excited about baking cookies--gingerbread to be exact.
“Oh me too, but did you ever taste the molasses syrup by itself?” laughed Charlsea. “YUK! But who knew it could taste so good in the dough?”
“Well I loved the spices so much that once I put extra spices in” said Brianne as she made a face. “That turned out to be a big mistake….they tasted HORRIBLE! I guess we follow a recipe for a reason”.
“Well, when cooking with my Grandma, she never looks at a recipe," Charlsea answered. “Yeah, my baba too," Brianne responded. "She has been doing it for so long, she just knows what to put in.”
It's time to put them in the oven. The girls watched and watched for the whole ten minutes while the Gingerbread men got fatter and fatter. MMMM...the house smelled soooo good!
|After the baking was all done, the two girls counted the gingerbread men out into piles.|
"These are going to make a really good activity over Christmas holidays,” smiled Charlsea.
“Yes, we can deliver little bags of them secretly to all our friends' mailboxes as a post-Christmas surprise!," smiled Brianne.
“Oh, and a little red ribbon tied around each one” added Charlsea and they both gave each other a happy high five.
What a wonderful way to spend time with friends or family! Looking for recipes? Try this out, and show us your cookies in the comments! Make sure you have an adult's help and never use the oven without supervision. Also, make sure your doll's watch from a safe distance so they don't get sticky! ENJOY!
