While Julian took a nice long nap yesterday, Ava and I spent some time in the kitchen together baking Snickerdoodles.
Ava did a great job rolling the dough into little balls (and a couple of snakes – the snakes burned by the way so you probably should avoid that if you make Snickerdoodles – LOL) and coating them with cinnamon and sugar.
At one point I mentioned what a good helper she is to me and she said, “Every time you make cookies, I will be your helper. Always, I will.” It was one of life’s sweet moments you never want to forget. Of course she followed it up with, “I’m getting a poopy hand!” as she covered her hand in the cinnamon/sugar mixture making her fingers brown. ;)
Despite their poopy brown hue, the cookies turned out quite tasty, but were harder than I expected. I wonder if it’s because I didn’t do any adjusting for high altitude. I’ll have to check into that. We kept a few for our family, but mostly wrapped them up for Jody’s coworkers.
