Yesterday I found this recipe online, one of my favorite baking sites! They looked like something that would be really quite simple for William to help with so I decided to stop at the grocery store on the way to the boys house and pick up what we needed to make them.

Will is really quite helpful in the kitchen, and enjoys to help me bake, so it was really fun. I will admit, I am a perfectionist. I have a hard time when people want to help me do things, fearing that it won't turn out exactly as I imagined it in my head. So when I met Will, not having had many little ones in my life prior, it took me a while to stop constantly saying "Here, I'll do this part for you". This project, I decided I would let him completely take the reins, that's what makes baking so fun anyway...Creativity!

I showed him how to do the first one and then gave him a tray of pie crust circles, and he was off! I was so impressed with how well he did all on his own. He kept saying things like "Wisa, on this next step I am going to just press the dough really gentle"

Scooping a little chocolate chip cookie dough into the center of each pie crust circle.Almost done! Such focus!

Folding over each top and pressing "gentwy" with a fork to seal
Applying egg white & sugar to the tops
Once we popped these babies in the oven, Will and I turned on the oven light and sat by the oven to watch our pie cookies progress and munch on the leftover cookie dough... so by the time they were done and out of the oven, neither of us really wanted any more sweets. I did try one, and I'll admit, they weren't the yummiest treat I've ever tasted. I think next time I'll need less pie...I couldn't really taste the cookie. But it didn't matter, we had a great time making them... Will was beaming with pride and insisted that we put them in a tupperware right away to give to him Momma on Sunday. He was so excited to tell her that he had made them all on his own. Perodically throughout the baking process he'd say "My Mommy is going to WOVE these cookes I am making her because I made them all by myself"

Fun times :)


  1. I AM going to "wove" my homemade treats from my little man. Thanks Lisa for being so awesome with Will!!

  1. That looks like an awesome treat eh!? Thanks for putting up the recipe too... we've got to try them. If a kid can do them, we have a chance of doing it too!
