Yesterday I had a hankering for some Sunbutter cookies and nothing but this recipe for Sun Blossoms would do (http://sunbutter.com/recipes-Sun-Blossoms.php).
We made cookie baking a family affair. My two kiddos took turns dumping ingredients into the mixing bowl and stirring and were delighted to chefs for the afternoon…especially chefs that taste-test the finished product! I scooped the dough into balls, my son rolled them in the sugar, and my daughter placed them on the cookie sheet. Talk about team work!
These cookies are naturally peanut-free and nut-free if you follow the recipe, but I also made mine gluten-free by substituting King Arthur’s gluten-free baking flour in place of regular all-purpose flour. You can’t even tell…honest!
The cookies are so delicious, the hard part is keeping enough cookies around to last for a family gathering tonight!
Spending quality time in the kitchen with your kids offers so many benefits:
- seeing the joy and ease of cooking and baking allergy-free
- cooking with creativity
- bonding with the family
- encouraging independence in the kitchen
So what are you waiting for? Measuring cups out and mixers up! Ready, set, GO!!!
