Both my kids love to help me in the kitchen.  If you want a giggle just ask Alfie to crack an egg.  He cracks it, but not in any style I have seen before and you may have some shell fishing to do afterwards! 

As a quick after school bake we decided to make Chocolate Chip Cookies.  Fast and easy- perfect!

Chocolate Chip Cookies

100g soft butter or margarine
50g soft brown sugar
1 egg (cracked by a 3 year old if possible, please!)
1 tsp vanilla extract
225g All purpose/Plain Flour
1/2 tsp Bicarbonate of Soda
80g chocolate chips (We use semi sweet)

Preheat Oven to 375 F/190 C

1. Cream together the butter and sugar- we use the KitchenAid with the K Beater
2. Add all other ingredients and mix well.  It will form a stiff dough. 
3. Divide the mix into little balls using good guess work or like us a tablespoon measuring spoon
4. Roll into neat balls then place spaced apart on a baking sheet and flatten each one with the palm of your hand
5. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes and transfer onto a wire rack to cool.


I tried to ask Harry what he though but he was too busy shovelling 4 cookies in his mouth one after the other to answer.  I will take that as a thumbs up!
