Scooping Cookie Dough, Montessori Practical Life In The Kitchen

My guys love to work in the kitchen, as do most. Much of our practical life work, now happens in tune with daily kitchen life in our home. Ava has spooned cookie dough many times, but this was the first time she was able to use a spring scoop completely on her own! This was very exciting for her to be able to squeeze and release cookie's. She LOVES this tool as does Xander 😍

I transferred the dough from my mixer to a shallow bowl for her to get easier access to the dough. She scooped the entire tray!! We ended up with a sheet of basically one cookie, but it was so awesome.
Ava helped to make the dough. She also operates the stand mixer.

This is our favourite cookie recipe called an Everything Cookie!
A friend shared this recipe with us.
