Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Our little miss is very anxious to learn to bake – she wants to be a pastry chef when she grows up! She is watching baking shows and taking cake decorating books out from the library. She said her goal for this new (school) year was to bake on her own. So we started simple with a batch of our favourite cookies. She did everything from start to finish and was so proud! Her brothers called them “DELICIOUS!”
