Nikole had a sweet idea to make chocolate chip cookies with Eloise, something I have not had the extra hands or courage to try with her myself. I was really excited because having Nikole bake with Eloise gave me the rare chance to sit back and watch her learn something new.
They were making Tara O'Brady's Basic, Great Chocolate Chip Cookies from her new book Seven Spoons, but Nikole swapped out the chocolate with Smarties, which Eloise approved of wholeheartedly! She sampled the Smarties throughout the whole baking process, of course.
The results were spectacularly delicious! So much so, that it was celebrated with ice cream, sprinkles and sparklers!
Baking is one of those things I don't do much of but I have been looking for a good chocolate chip cookie recipe, having one on hand is a must I think. I definitely have one now, thanks to Tara's book! And watching Nikole bake with Ellie, it looked like so much fun, she may have given me the courage to bake with her myself.
