Cooking with Kids: The Lazy Baker

Cooking with Kids: The Lazy Baker

Last Saturday afternoon, after a long day of going all over town to run errands, we came home and collapsed on the couch. Of course, being tired doesn't mean one is not in the mood for a little snack. It was completely apropos my son and I had a tin of The Lazy Baker Chocolate Chip cookie mix to try out.

Calling itself the baking solution "to help individuals discover their inner baker through the art of lazy baking..." The Lazy Baker offers ready-to-make cookie mixes that are pre-measured and completely natural. (There were no numbers or polysyllabic names on the label.)

We added softened butter, an egg and vanilla to their mix and soon we had a fluffy dough that rivaled our own cookie recipe with mounds of sweet and semi-sweet chocolate chips. My son had fun mixing the dough and shaping it into balls. In about 15 minutes our cookies were ready to eat.

Our smiling cookie was a great surprise ending to our baking experience.

The Lazy Baker cookies looked and tasted homemade and the directions were easy enough that children can practically bake them themselves. And while you may think, "How hard is it to measure flour, sugar and crack some eggs?" sometimes you just want a little help in the kitchen.
