Cooking with Preschoolers

Bethelle and I made these great PUMPKIN COOKIES. They were perfect for her to help.
These are great for making with kids because:
1) Sooooo simple. Just a couple ingredients. This suits a short attention span.
2) No eggs. Lick the bowl without guilt or worry.
3) No perfection required. Dump and mix.
4) They're cookies!
5) Does pumpkin count as a vegetable?
The pictured ingredients are all that's required!

Mix together: one box of spice cake mix, one can of pumpkin (15 oz), one cup chocolate chips. I also chose to add 1/2 tsp of pumpkin pie spice. Scoop this out on a greased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 12 minutes. Let them cool on the pan for a few minutes, and then on a cooling rack.

I love those pictured ingredients for cookies, especially the one in the purple shirt.
