Now I make these cookies with my 4 year old daughter Vita , who loves baking cookies ,measure the ingridiences outside the bowl(thats the funniest part of making them) Fun for the kids and a great way to get them involved in the kitchen! Please enjoy them and share! PS. Secret ingridients: Hugs kisses laughter and love!
