Jakes Snickerdoodle Cookies

As a lot of you know part of having kids is getting the joy of helping them with homework…

OK.  Sometimes it’s not so joyful.  I can remember many spelling lists over the years that brought us all kinds of things and joy was usually not one of them!


Recently, however, my son Jake had to make up a missing assignment in his Home Ec class.  Now, that is MY kind of homework 🙂

It was titled “Watchamacallits” and called for things like 60 Tbsp of flour, 32 Tbsp sugar, etc.  He had to convert the mystery recipe and then make it.

There he is hard at work and THIS homework was completely joyful!  Jake likes to cook with me and I love to have him help.

This recipe was all him though with me standing by to help a little bit here and there.

Jakes Snickerdoodle Cookies are quite a treat!   They kept super well for a couple of days in an air tight container…

They just didn’t make it much longer than that–  Very tasty 🙂

Wow… it’s hard to believe that it’s Wednesday already.  We’ve had such lovely weather the past few days- I’m going to be super bummed when fall sets back in around here.


Happy Cooking!
