Grandma and Me Contest

My granddaughter Kaylen and I are entering a "Grandma and Me" chocolate chip cookie baking contest at the Chilliwack Exhibition. It's for children 8 and under and either their grandma or their mom. I called dibs and threw in a sleepover to tip the scales in my favour. ;-)

Kaylen did a wonderful job with all her tasks. Almost all of the flour ended up in the bowl, and she was an excellent brown sugar lump smasher!

Adding eggs and pouring the measured vanilla was easy peasy.

She even counted all the cookies and let me know that we had exactly 15 cookies in the oven. Not bad for a little girl who just turned 3 in March. (Grandmas are allowed to brag!)

We only need the 5 best cookies for the contest, but we made 5 or 6 dozen extra because Grandpa likes to be sure when he "tests" the cookies.

Yummm, they taste like winners! Stay tuned, the official judging happens at the exhibition grounds tomorrow at 1:30.

Be sure to save a cookie for Mommy, okay Kaylen? ;)

Good luck with the contest! Who could not win with such a darling little girl and lucious looking cookies! I'm sure you two had a wonderful time baking.
