Decorating cookies for holidays is a great activity to do with your grandchildren. (If you need a good recipe for a soft sugar cookies, you can see my recipe.
But here’s a little twist to the idea. Instead of using cookie cutters to cut out different shapes that are smallish in size, make a humongous cookie. Press some cookie dough into a disposable aluminum pie pan and bake it! You’ll get a giant-size cookie! A size that will give your grandchildren more ‘room’ to decorate (and more sugar to their systems!).
You could bake jumbo cookies any time of the year — not just at Halloween when grandchildren already have lots of sugar coursing through their bodies. Do it on New Year’s Day, President’s Day, Ground Hog Day, First Day of Summer — ANY day making and decorating huge cookies with grandchildren will be a hoot!
Do you have a good cookie recipe that you make with (or for) your grandchildren?
