If there's one sure way to make it a happy afternoon at our house, it's making chocolate chip cookies. Kellan calls the chips "bettersweet" chocolate. I should probably correct him, but hey, he won't be three forever!
For a recent cooking activity at preschool, Kellan's class made chocolate chip cookies. Everyone has a small task and each child gets to spoon some dough onto the cookie sheet. When it was Kellan's turn, he spooned a big helping of dough in his mouth instead of the sheet. Then he spit it back out in the bowl. Thankfully, the teacher had a good sense of humor about it and there was plenty of dough ready to bake. Whew! I'd hate to be the kid who ruined cookie day.
What's especially amusing is that Kellan told his teacher that he gets to eat cookie dough at home. That's a head-scratcher because I don't remember letting him eat raw cookie dough. Not only because of the risk of salmonella, but because I'm not a fan of uncooked dough. I do let Kellan lick homemade frosting off spoons so maybe he got mixed up.In any case, people feel pretty strongly about the raw cookie dough debate. There's even a Facebook page called I am willing to risk salmonella to eat raw cookie dough. Even if the risk of salmonella from raw cookie dough is small, I'd rather not let my kid take any chances. What do you think about eating cookie dough?
