The response for the Virtual Baking Class has been amazing. I have thoroughly enjoyed reading all of your messages about how excited your children are and how you were searching for fun activities to keep them engaged during this hectic time. As of today, parents are still registering their children so we will have a full class. With the anticipation of such a large group of participants, I had to think long & hard about what recipe to go with and how to create an experience that would be fun & easy for all ages.
Participants will be tuning in from all over the United States, so I also had to consider that some states are under stricter quarantine orders than others. Therefore, I wanted to choose a recipe that could be achieved with items that you already have on hand to eliminate or minimize at best the task of having to get out to the store.
We will be baking...drum roll please...Shortbread Cookies. You only need 3 ingredients and it's easy enough for the youngest Baker to the most advanced Baker to master. After we prepare our cookie dough, we will take it a step further to create both a simple cookie and an advanced cookie so adult supervision or the assistance of an older sibling will be required.
I'm so excited to share such a simple and classic recipe with your children! One that my grandmother would approve (wearing her apron in the photo) for being quick, easy, and super tasty! She taught me so much about baking and now I get to pass on a made from scratch treat to your children that they can one day pass along. The thought of that just makes me so happy!
