Anyway, because it was her first time cooking all by herself from start to finish, I decided to document the process. (And I helped her put the cookie sheet into the oven, because it was a little heavy for her little hands, which were engulfed in the massive oven mits).
Here is a video of her making the cookies. (Notice I squeezed in some math lessons while I was at it? Math and cooking always goes nicely together.)
First, you put one cup of peanut butter (make sure the only ingredient is peanuts) into a food processor. We just use our blendtec blender.
Then add 1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon of maple syrup and 1 teaspoon of sea salt into the food processor and blend together.
Scoop out balls of cookie dough using a little cookie scoop. Then, smash the balls down with a fork to make the cookies flat. If you would like to add a few chocolate chips to each cookie, go right ahead. Chocolate and peanut butter is always a yummy combination, right?
Bake in the oven at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes.
Then, taste the deliciousness! Here is a video of Abbey trying a taste of her freshly baked cookie for the first time. (Also, did you know Abbey has a youtube channel? It's called, "Abbey Reads a Book." Check it out if you wish: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCMJUTZxC3YEFIp1BKciKYwA.)
