Baking Cookies, Making Memories

Is there anything as comforting as the smell of cookies baking? Last night, while we were grocery shopping Riley asked for cookies. This is pretty common as cookies happen to be her favorite snack. However, something was different. Maybe it was the cold weather or the Christmas spirit, but instead of reaching for the Chips Ahoy, I purchased cookie dough and asked if she wanted to help me make our cookies. She was so excited she scarfed down her spaghetti dinner. We cleaned up and started baking. Now since she is only 4 and we have not allowed her to be in the kitchen much I did get the pre-made dough, but we had so much fun and she was so proud next time we may make them from scratch. These were toll house caramel filled chocolate chip. I think they would make wonderful treats for Santa. The cookies were delicious but the time spent with my little helper was unforgettable. It was such a great night!
