White Chocolate Chunk Cookies
Our girls love baking - and our younger daughter very kindly made us a batch of these tasty cookies before she went away on her school camp.
Here's the recipe:
1/2 cup butter 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 cup sugar 1/4 cup oatmeal
1 egg 1 1/2 cups (8oz) chopped white chocolate chunks
2 tsp vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 375F (190C).
Beat butter and sugar together then add egg and vanilla. Mix well.
Sift dry ingredients and stir in the oatmeal. Add these dry ingredients and the chocolate to the butter mixture.
Mix well then roll into balls and flatten onto a non-stick baking sheet.
Bake for 8-10 mins.
We try to let our girls bake and cook as much as possible to get them to learn and gain confidence in the kitchen. Plus, as I've already mentioned in another post - baking provides lots of excellent numeracy skills practice too!
So go on - set your kids off in the kitchen - what a great skill for them to learn!
