Holiday Baking with Kids and a Dozen Cookie Recipes for Kids

I know I’ve made a lot of jokes about baking with my kids in the past and those stories are all true.  Every. Last. Word.  And despite my harrowing tales about 4 boys in a kitchen, with sugar, and not enough spoons I still love doing it.  Call me crazy.

As each year passes they grow more and more interested in the recipes and the process of baking.  Daddy may have given them a golf club as soon as they let out their first cry but I filled the other hand with a mixing spoon.  The mixing spoon actually serves a double purpose.  Stirring and shoveling.  Into their mouths, that is.

When we are baking cookies the kids are always sampling the cookie dough.  I can’t stop them, especially when I’m always sneaking pieces.  Do as I say, not as I do.  Yeah, right.  Not when cookie dough is involved.

Lucky for me, I don’t worry about my little monkeys sneaking bits of cookie dough when I bake with Safest Choice™ Pasteurized Eggs.

The Safest Choice all natural egg pasteurization process eliminates the risk of Salmonella in eggs before they even enter your kitchen.  Plus, Safest Choice eggs stay fresh longer because the pasteurization process eliminates the bacteria that causes spoilage.  Budget friendly and allows me to eat raw cookie dough.  Winning.

I’m sharing a dozen no fail cookie recipes that will make you and your kids smile.  Grab some eggs, wash your hands, and make some memories with your kids this holiday season!
