12 Days of Christmas – Candy Cane Cookies

xday09-01

I saw this cookie recipe in the Artful Parent’s Winter e-book a while back, and it looked like a fun activity for the girls to do. (I haven’t included the recipe because I couldn’t see it on her site.)

It started off well enough. Poppet had a lot of fun rolling the dough into snakes. Instead of twisting the two colours together, she broke off pieces of white dough and pressed it onto her red snakes to make the candy canes. Pixie decided that it would be a lot more fun to break up her dough into lots of little crumbs.

When Poppet got tired of making candy canes, I gave the girls cookie cutters. Pixie was far more interested in building a structure than rolling dough.

The cookies turned out rather well. (And they’re delicious.)

Do you bake with your kids?

Talk to me. Seriously. You have no idea how badly I'm craving adult conversation.
