Christmas Cookie #2- Chipper Crinkle Cookies

{Boy, do I remember this day from last year. My three little helpers were so excited!
I can still picture their cute chocolate smiles}

Today I had three little bakers in the kitchen. My cousin's little sweetie joined us this morning and was an excellent little helper.
(We only had one egg dropped on the floor and 1/2 of the chocolate chips dumped in the bowl before they we were suppose to- BOTH done by my two year old! Ha! To be honest, it really just made me laugh. Having them in the kitchen with me is so fun.... never a dull moment!)

We decided to try out a new recipe and it got three chocolate smeared smiles from three cute little girls.
These chocolate cookies will definitely be made again in this house!

Our Lesson: These "snow kissed" cookies remind us to be thankful for all the beautiful snow that has fallen.
