I don’t know what it is but there are some smells that bring back fond
memories and one of them is the whiff of a freshly baked cookie. I don’t

I don’t know what it is but there are some smells that bring back fond
memories and one of them is the whiff of a freshly baked cookie. I don’t
have a particularly sweet tooth and can actually survive without cakes or

It isn’t just eating a freshly baked cookie that is enjoyable but making
them can be very satisfying too. Cookie baking can be great fun if you
have young kids and that is probably where some of my earliest cookie
memories come from. I remember how much I loved helping my grandma mix
all the cookie ingredients together and then shape them on a baking tray
before she put them in the oven. I felt so special when she let me lick
the mixing bowl clean of the cookie mixture too! Anyway, the first time I
suggested that my daughter could help me bake some cookies she was about
four years old and her little face lit up. We made quite a mess I must be
honest but we really had a great time together and the cookies didn’t
turn out all that bad either.

If you have young kids in your family then why not give cookie baking a
try? You don’t have to be a wonderful cook; in fact you can buy cookie
mixes that you just have to add water to so you have more chance of
baking great cookies. You could always buy some of the cookie dough that
has become popular but I think that the mixing process is the best bit!
Making different shapes of cookies and then decorating them afterwards is
also something that most kids love to do. You might even think about
giving some of these homemade cookies as gifts, especially if your kids
helped make them. A cookie that was decorated by a grandchild for
Christmas or any other special occasion is bound to be enjoyed far more
than a store bought one.
