(My daughter, Fathini n her friend Nazlah were putting the dough on the baking sheet)
They were so excited to be able to help me as they had some opportunities to do some baking in their schools too. They really listened to my instructions. However, my youngest daughter, Hafizah was just watching us. She might be too little to join in this kind of activity. I might try to involve her in other activities. We were able to bake four batches of choc. chip cookies.
(The process of baking the cookies)
We waited for about 25 minutes before we could try the first batch of the cookies. Of course, the kids couldn't wait to try the cookies. When the cookies were ready, the kids were gobbling (not really eating) even though I asked them to make sure that the cookies were not too hot. After they have gobbled about 3-4 cookies each, they resumed with their playing activities. The cookies that they made were actually quite big compared to what I used to do. But, I was happy because I could involve them in the process.
( the first batch of the cookies- the cooked ones)
I can share the recipe here. But I have to tell you that my late mum got this recipe from somewhere. We've been using this recipe for a long time and it's a must for our family to have this cookies during Eid. (Raya Posa).
