The Holidays and their cute recipes are a great opportunity to involve children in the kitchen. Here are some super easy recipes to cook with them.
Boxes of cookies
Kids LOVE using the rolling pin! So this cookie recipe should appeal to them, especially since it requires a bit of cutting and gluing. Start by making your favorite cookie recipe by letting the kids crack the eggs if they can and mix it up. Roll out your dough and then cut out two squares for each box and an outline to give your box depth. Once your cookies are baked, give the kids a piping tip full of frosting so they can glue the box down and decorate it.
These cute little Santas are as easy for kids to make as they are delicious. First cut the strawberries and prepare the whipped cream. You can also mix marshmallow creme and a little cream cheese to make your creme stay solid longer.
Then let the children place the cream with a pastry nozzle andglue chocolate eyes with an ear pick or liquid chocolate eyes with a toothpick.
Kids can participate in every step of this recipe, from measuring out to mixing. This is a really nice recipe to make and much easier to succeed than expected. The result is beautiful and the cookies are delicious. You will need:
Bowl 1: 1 cup uns alted butter, 1 ½ white sugar, 2 eggs, 2 tbsp. vanilla extract
Bowl 2: 3 cups all-purpose flour, 1 tbsp. baking powder, ½ tsp. s alt
You will also need food coloring and decorative candy.
In a bowl, combine the softened uns alted butter and granulated sugar until combined. Add the eggs and vanilla, and mix. In another bowl, combine the flour, baking powder and s alt.
Gradually pour the contents of the second bowl into the first and separate the resulting ball into two equal parts. At this point you can decide if you want to dye only one half or both. You must then roll the two parts so as to form two plates of the same size (or almost). Feel free to add flour to keep the dough from sticking to your rolling pin, there's enough butter so you don't have to worry about it cracking.
Overlap your two plates, cut the sides to form a rectangle andsave the scraps for the children to make more small cookies. Wrap your roll in a piece of cellophane and place it in the refrigerator for two hours or in the freezer for one hour before slicing it into rounds with a thin-bladed knife. Bake at 350°F for about ten minutes.
The Grinch Cake
A green cake decorated entirely by young children will look just like a Grinch cake. It’s also the perfect dessert to eat while watching the movie! If you're in a hurry, you can use a white cake mix and color it with gel food coloring to get a nice clean color. Otherwise, you can follow the recipe below.
Mix ½ cup oil, 1 ¼ cup sugar and two eggs. Separately, mix 1 ¼ of sugar, a pinch of s alt, 2 cups of flour and 1 tbsp. baking powder. Add this dry mix to your first bowl alternately with a cup of milk, mix well and add 1 tbsp. vanilla essence. Bake at 350°F for about an hour, watching closely.
Breathtakingly simple, these little trees will refresh your kids while getting them in the holiday spirit. Cut slices of melon and give the children triangle-shaped stencils. When they have finished cutting the fir trees, you can collect the crusts to make the trunks and the scrapsto make a fruit salad.
Here is another delicious and fruity idea to please children by having fun. Ask the children to cut strawberries and bananas. Then help them place them in the shape of a candy cane. You can add these canes to the lunch box to decorate a little.
If you're looking for ways to get your kids to eat more vegetables, this plate is a hit! Cook some beans and place them in the center of the table with a small bowl of corn and another bowl of peppers cut into small cubes. Then let your children prepare a Christmas tree by adding a trunk and a cheese star.
Christmas tree meringues
I love meringues and so do my kids. They cost next to nothing to make, kids can make almost all of them, they're delicious, and you can use them to make those Christmas trees. Just put them on the cookie sheet in three strokes, with a nozzle, after having colored them green. To make your meringues, whip the whites of 4 eggs until stiff and add 1 ¼ cups of sugar.
With older children who can handle toothpicks without hurting themselves, you can make these snowmen. Start by boiling hard-boiled eggs and cutting slices of carrots and leaving themchildren peel the eggs, assemble the characters and decorate them with peppercorns and sprigs of parsley. Your fellows will be able to make any plate of raw vegetables magical.
Christmas (strawberry) trees
Melt white chocolate or make royal icing and dye it green. Then ask your child to dip hulled strawberries (or frozen strawberries if they are too hard to find this season) in your mixture and sprinkle them with white candies. Then take over to stick a toothpick in the strawberries and hold them on cookies or leave them as they are on a serving tray lined with waxed paper.
