I teach a Sunday School class at church that is all little girls and it's fun to bring them treats now and then and they love it! I thought that this Sunday instead of getting tiny packages of candy I would get Serena to help me bake some treats for them. She is in the class too. She was delighted to help and we had fun making these cute little teddy bears on a stick.
I used a Peanut Butter Cookie recipe and two different sized cookie scoops. The head was a size 30 and the ears a size 100. Arrange the head and the ears so they touch on the baking sheet.
Insert the stick towards the bottom of the ball (head). Bake for 12 minutes @350°. Remove from the oven and gently but firmly press the M&M's for eyes and a mini Kiss for a nose into the cookie. Allow to cool on the baking sheet and then carefully remove with a spatula.
She is beginning to really feel the 5 years that is between her and the boys especially since her puppy died a few weeks ago (the second one lost in less than 6 months, the other one ran away :( so this was right down her alley. I have two that love helping in the kitchen but find it works best if they help me one at a time. Anthony would have liked to do these too but I told him I promised her she could. After he left she said,"This is so cool, it's just girls." ☺ She makes me chuckle. She really enjoyed helping.
And she was happy to sample one as well!
