In sickness and in health

In all my sickness I forgot that yesterday was the kick off for Crafty Crow's Valentine giveaway of my very own holiday cards! Go over there and enter to win. While you are there, take a look around, they have some of the coolest craft-i-est ideas for kiddies.

And kids? Mine want to do whatever I do. This is why the Kid now has his own art table after watching me at my drafting table every night. Same goes for cooking. Since the Kid is all fine and dandy healthwise, he decided he wanted to make cookies. I told him that since I was sick he'd have to do all the work. He was ok with that. Ha, sucka. The thing is - he said he wanted 'Cinnamon Cookies'. Uh, ok. I don't know what those are exactly, I kept trying to change his mind, but he was insistent.
I figured the best thing to do was a typical sugar cookie, but pump it up into a sugar cookie/snickerdoodle. Suddenly I'm a cookie geneticist. I drew up a quick recipe - high on cinnamon - and true to his word - he did all the work. He mixed all the ingredients, formed the cookies and sprinkled the topping. All I had to do was put them in the oven. He is only 5 after all.

In the end they were...fantastic. Chewy, yet crispy on the edges, deliciously cinnamon+sugary. A true collaboration. I should fake sick from now on. I won't have to do a thing.
