Peanut Butter and M&M Cookies

I’ve felt rather guilty about how few holiday-themed activities I’ve done with the kids; so for a “casual Friday” activity, we made peanut butter and M&M cookies.

The kids were so excited, especially my Little One who absolutely loves to cook. They helped pour in some of the ingredients; my son helped read the recipe, including the fractions which he is just beginning to learn about in school; and we did a little addition when Mommy didn’t feel like washing up the exact size measuring cup that was called for. They also had a lot of fun squishing the dough balls with a fork.

Not only was it very educational, it was very tasty. Merry Christmas!
