Toddler Cookie Cutting Memories

What age were you when you first made cookies? I don’t even remember how old I was. In fact, I don’t remember doing anything in the kitchen as a little girl except eating and opening the frig to get my cup of milk. There is a vague memory of liking sugar. No wonder I like sweets too much.

My lil grand, Ivy, is a toddler and will soon have her 3rd birthday. On my October visit, I brought her an early birthday present – a horse head cookie cutter because she loves horses.

Cream the first two. I melted the butter for Ivy’s cookies.

1 Cup Butter

2/3 Cup Sugar

Beat in 1 egg.


1 teaspoon vanilla

1/2 teaspoon salt

2-1/2 cups sifted flour

Mix all ingredients ’til well blended. Chill the dough for two or three hours.

Now it’s Ivy’s turn to roll out the chilled dough. She LOVED this…

She got to cut most of the cookies by herself, and I helped only with a few. This was SOOO much fun for both of us. I love to make memories with my lil grand.
