Our church is having a meet and greet for the the students at Southwestern Adventist University (SWAU) where my husband started working this year. Every year the church, which is right on campus, holds this event, and church members bring watermelon and cookies to share with them. I decided I wanted to go so I looked through my Pinterest boards for some cookie recipes. I picked out three but only had time to make two of them.
Roo helped me make the first batch — Strawberry Lemonade cookies! Boo and I had already done the shopping in the morning to get all the ingredients so I had everything set out on the cupboard all ready for Roo’s special time with me!

We immediately got busy. Roo loved using the hand mixer. I was going to use my kitchen aid but wanted to teach her about over mixing wanted her to feel like she was doing it not just some machine.
So she mixed it all up and then it was time to make the cookies. I totally love Pampered Chef’s (PC) Small Scoop. It was easy enough for her little hands and made perfect scoops each time. We also put them on PC’s Large Stoneware Bar Pans. I love stoneware! I have never had anything ever burn on them. They always turn out perfect.

I also enjoyed watching the girls decorate. It was a picture into their creative thinking. Loo used the sprinkles with no real thought pattern except that Mommy had said don’t waste them. I let her know she could use more then 10 sprinkles per cookie and then we were all good. Roo made hers to look just like the cookie I had demoed for them. Almost exactly! We really are twinies . Boo on the other hand was super creative making some half and half with the colors, some just pink, some with the crystal like sprinkles. They sky was her only limit. I love how even something as simple as this can show me another insight into my children!
