Kids and a Mom in the Kitchen #26: Sugar Cookie Moons

Time for Kids and a Mom in the Kitchen
(A weekly linky where you can share your special time in the kitchen, such a great place for learning. You can also link up Kid-Friendly Recipes)

The linky is at the bottom.

This week we completed our Mm Moon unit. We talked a little more about what the moon is made of, the craters on the moon plus talked about Moon Phases. Our recipe today comes from one of the books we read this week called, The Moon Might Be Milk by
Now, onto the recipe!

Sugar Cookie Moons

 Amelia read the ingredients for a change and even gathered some of them. She is getting so good at reading.

They were really anticipating making these cookies because they wanted to take some to our next door neighbors.

(They are constantly practicing snapping.)

We need:
2 cups flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup softened butter
1 cup sugar
1 egg
2 Tbs milk
1 tsp vanilla

First we combined the flour, baking powder and salt.
(I've been letting the girls do more on their own lately.)

Tabitha insisted I get a picture of them hugging.

Then we mixed the butter and sugar together.

I let them crack the egg, though we used a separate bowl so we could find any egg shell (there was 1 tiny piece).

Adding the egg, milk and vanilla.

And mixing it together.

Adding the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mixing well.

 Then we took rounded teaspoons of dough and rolled them into balls.

We greased the bottom of a glass and dipped it in sugar. This was used to press the cookies and give the moons a glittery appearance.

This recipe made a little over 2 dozen cookies. We took some to the next-door neighbor and plan to enjoy the rest.

They are quite good!

Do you have your children help you in the kitchen?  What lessons do they learn? Do you have any kid friendly recipes to share?
I'd love to see your posts, whether you have done something this week or some time in the past. Just link up below. This is a weekly linky.

  1. We did the exact same thing tonight after dinner! I didn't take quite as many pictures, but we did get a few for our Mm Moon post. They were yummy!

  2. What a lovely blog! Your daughters are adorable! I love that you let them make the cookies mostly on their own - I don't see many mothers allow that anymore. Thank you for sharing such a happy, delicious post. I'm your newest follower! :)
