Two weeks ago, Matthew completed his first solo baking endeavour by making the peanut butter cookies that he learned to make in his cooking class...the only thing he didn't do was take the baked cookies out of the hot oven. We bought bulk organic peanut butter, organic palm coconut sugar, aluminum-free baking soda, and we pulled out our usual organic eggs. The cookies were, in my opinion, delicious! Even more enjoyable: Watching Matthew experience a sense of accomplishment from doing it all by himself and serving up a plate of cookies to family and friends! Sadly, I forgot to take a picture of the completed cookies, and they disappeared before I remembered, but they were a definite hit!
