Yesterday I had such fun making special peppermint valentine cookies with Little Man. The fact that he is getting to be such a tidy and dependable helper combined with his charming humor and fresh perspective make him a truly enjoyable baking buddy.
Unfortunately I didn't snap any photos of him crushing the peppermints into cookie-sized chunks with a hammer; I was too busy keeping an eye on nearby fingers and surroundings. It was sure cute, though!
Of course we had to cut the cookies into heart shapes...
and arrange them carefully on the cookie sheet.
Look good? It gets better!I was a little concerned about the mess of chocolate drizzling with a three-year-old, but Little Man was actually tidier about it than I was! Of course, though, if it hadn't been for me, the cookies on the edges would have had a very scanty amount of chocolate drizzles, and that would have been unthinkable! ; )
