Doesn’t get much sweeter

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.

  1. Snickerdoodles are my most favorite cookies ever!! I can’t wait ’til my son is old enough to bake with me and not just want to be held so he can watch. How fun and such precious memories. :)

  2. Now you need to let her start cracking eggs (lol). Ava was a good helper to me, too, up in Estes Park when we made cut- out sugar cookies,a memory I will always treasure. Glad you had that moment with her. Cute pics of Ava. A boy and his blocks photos of Julian were precious. Good shooting, Amy.

  3. Snickerdoodles are my favorite cookies too! And it’s funny, every time I mention them in a post, I get at least one comment (usually from a guy) saying “Snickerdoodles? That’s really what they are called?”-ha!

    I make Christmas Snickerdoodles by rolling the balls of dough in either red or green decorating sugar mixed with the cinnamon. Yum!

  4. Oh, I love snickerdoodles! And that is the sweetest ever comment about always being your helper… wishing you a very merry holiday!
