Chocolate Chip Cookies

 

Winding up 2018 and this bake-a-thon series with kid’s favourite’s cookie and my son’s favourite too, Chocolate Chip Cookie. I have baked this cookie ample number of times, but never posted it. I had to include this in this bake-a-thon series specially because my just turned 9 year old helper has baked them all by himself from start to finish. Yes I am not joking or just bragging, but he did and I was so proud. This time I was his helper and he the main chef.

He use to have this interest in baking and cooking since he was quite small. Ok I am not going to bore you with his stories or my memories, but I love to see him help me. He wanted to make cookies for santa all by himself and he enjoyed doing all the chores, from weighing to beating to shaping and finally baking. The mom in me was a bit scared when he was handling the hot oven, but I had to hide my fear. I did 3 bakes on that day and he helped me in all. What an awesome day it was.
