how to make tooties

Will helped Erin and I make cookies ("tooties") for a Holiday party. We decided to make gingersnaps, my favorite. Will has had these cookies before, and they were a pretty big hit, so we thought they'd go over well with him too.

It was necessary to put Will in an apron so he wouldn't get disastrously messy, so Erin had a laugh by putting this apron on him, complete with pearl necklace.

haha, ok let's get something less girly on him.

That's better.

So we read through the ingredients together and started adding them to the bowl. Will helped in just about every step as we prepared the dough.

Then we were ready to roll the dough into balls and put them on the cookie sheet. Will was very helpful in this step. Notice how well he spreads the cookies out evenly on the sheet.

I gave Will his bath while the cookies were in the oven, then after he got his jammies on he got to come back downstairs and got 2 cookies, because he was such a special helper.

I'm not sure what he was expecting, but gingersnaps have a different flavor - I think he was a bit confused by the first bite.

But then he remembered how delicious these cookies are and ate em up.
