I made these cookies with my youngest daughter, Lucy. She is my baking assistant. She is an expert egg cracker. Yes, a few end up on the floor, but it’s all part of learning. Lucy is also very good at adding my pre measured ingredients. Her favorite ingredient to add is the chocolate chips. I usually give her a little pile to sample before we stir the chips into the batter. It makes her very happy.
Lucy and I made these peanut butter snickerdoodles together. With these cookies, I let Lucy press the white chocolate chips onto the cookies before we put them in the oven. She had complete creative license as to chip placement. I think she did a fabulous job.
