Pie Dough Cookie Time

Toddler ages: 24 months, 24 months, 3.5 years

Materials you'll need:
-pie dough (HERE'S a great shortening-free, whole wheat recipe)
-cookie cutters
-butter knives
-pastry brush
-cinnamon and sugar

Step 1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Make the pie dough.

Step 2. Roll out the pie dough, about 1/4 inch thick.

Step 3. Let your toddler cut it into shapes with cookie cutters and decorate the cookies with forks and butter knives.

Step 4. Place the cookies on a greased cookie sheet, brush them with butter, then sprinkle them with cinnamon and sugar. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes at 375 degrees F.


P.S. This activity is even MORE fun when two other toddlers are visiting for "Happiness" school!
