And Chloe and Christmas
Now that Thanksgiving is behind us, and we've had a week to recuperate, we're back on track with our letters. To introduce the letter C, what better way then watching Cookie Monster sing his best song - C is for cookie. Princess V even chimed in with "good enough for me". We practiced writing C's, and then we finished the day making peppermint cookies and eating some!
Here's the recipe we used -
3/4 cup Shortening
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
2 TBS Milk
1 TBS vanilla Extract
1 large egg
2 cups All Purpose Flour
1 Tsp Salt
3/4 tsp baking soda
3/4 cup crushed peppermint candies (we used baking peppermint chips)
1. Beat shortening, brown sugar, sugar, milk and vanilla. Beat in egg. Combine flour, salt and baking soda in seperate bowl. Mix into shortening mixture. Stir in crushed candy. Shape into 1 inch balls. Place 2 inches apart on ungreased baking sheet
2.Bake 8-10 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool and enjoy.
