Tonight was Cookie Baking Night. In attendance this evening: Ethan and Carissa. Tonight we made a cookie called "Oreo Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies". It is exactly what it sounds like. Start with your favorite chocolate chip cookie dough recipe and some Double Stuff Oreo cookies.
With a cookie scoop, put a scoop of dough on top of the Oreo. Flip it over and put another scoop of dough on it.
Ahh, the finished product. Pretty tasty too. (Note: I used the Nestle Tollhouse chocolate chip cookie dough recipe, which calls for 2-1/4 cups of flour. Next time, I would up the flour to 3 cups. With less flour, the cookie tends to spread out too much, but still a very tasty treat).
Tonight we also read lesson 51 from Leading Little Ones to God by Marian Schoolland. The lesson was titled "We Must Be Born Again" (excellent lesson---did a great job explaining what the Bible means when it says "we must be born again".) Ethan read John 3:1-5 for us.
After our lesson, we continued working on our parachute project for Voice of the Martyrs. (See last Cookie Baking Night post for more details). Tonight we traced the parachutes and cut them out. We'll continue the project next Cookie Baking Night.
At the end of the evening, we went outside to wait for Ethan and Carissa's mom to pick them up. I told them they could play a game while I did some weeding in the flower garden. They said, "We want to weed!" So, I got them some gloves, pointed out the weeds, and let them have it. They are great weed pullers. After their mom arrived, I said, "Okay, you can pull two more weeds and then it's time to go." Carissa said, "Awawwww."
Hmm. Note to self: Start weeding earlier in the evening next time :)
And as usual...........a fun time was had by all.
