I bake a lot with Wild Thing, but I think this has been our most fun cooking together activity yet:
First, there's pulsing the dough in the food processor -- he giggled every time it whirred around.
Then, there's filling the pastries (spreading messy jam and placing blueberry eyes and nose to create our magical, sparkly Elmo!)
After that, there's putting the tops on and poking the holes in the tops, which delighted Wild Thing to no end.
Finally, there's playing with flour and rolling pin while the pop tarts bake!
|I think he made up a rolling pin song!|
Hint: You could always use pre-made pie crust. Also, smitten kitchen has other great filling ideas/suggestions, such as cinnamon brown sugar or nutella! She also has tips for the dough trimmings, so they don't go to waste.
