Tabby Bakes

DSC_5743This kid loves to cook. So when I suggested that as a potential summer goal, Tabby jumped all over it. Better still, she decided she would be in charge of producing the dessert for our family meeting.

DSC_5773The first week, she tackled caramel stuffed chocolate chip cookies. I’d love to link to the recipe for you, but I have no idea where she got it. She found the recipe on her own, had me buy the ingredients and then she executed – beautifully. She did have me help chop the caramels and preheat the oven, but that was it. She even did cleanup.

DSC_6257This week, she tackled pretzel cookies, which I’ve had pinned forever. I picked this one (it was my turn) partially because it intrigued me, partially because it was easy (we were coming back from camping that day) and partially because you could stuff them with ice cream and we had a 1/4 tub of vanilla in the freezer just taking up space.DSC_6268

The hardest thing about this recipe was making the “pretzel flour” in the food processor, only because getting the thing together so it will run without some practice is tricky. She had some help with that and stuffing the sandwiches.


As you can see, they were a hit.


I can’t wait to see what she comes up with the rest of summer! And maybe next summer she can start making dinner!!
