Baking with the kids
This week the kids wanted to do some baking, however each had their very own idea of what they wanted to make. So today I will post their favorite recipes. First up--Princess she wanted to make Fruit pizza.
Sugar cookie mix (make according to directions for drop cookies)
variety of fruit
First prepare cookie dough. Split dough in half and spread out into 2 pie plates and cook until golden brown.
Let cookie cool and spread a layer of vanilla yogurt over cookie and cover with fruit. Should be served immediately. Freeze extra cookie until ready to use or....
Try this variation...not so healthy but good. Melt chocolate and spread or drizzle it on the cookie. Kids love to make crazy designs on the cookie. Wait until chocolate hardens and serve. I had some left over chocolate drops from girl scouts that I used as I want to get rid of them. This freezes fairly well once cut into squares.
Next up Little Man wanted to make his all time favorite-- Banana bread. He is the only one in the house who likes it. I am more of a pumpkin bread gal. This is the recipe I use because it is simple!
3 ripe bananas
1/2 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp baking soda
pinch of salt
1 and 1/2 cup flour
Mix all together and bake at 350 degrees for 45 min or until golden brown
I just love this face!
Yummy! Yes, I know he is wearing a halloween shirt but he dressed himself this morning:)
