This eggless chocolate chip cookie recipe comes a week late as the little chef who made them had kept me pretty busy over the last weekend to even think of writing! I’m glad I could click a few pictures before the cookies were gobbled down:).
I had told about Star café in my marie biscuit pudding and this week the star café’s little chef, Nandini, paired up with her aunt (that is me!) to make awesome chocolate cookies! And while the aunt wanted to make chocolate chip cookies, the niece wanted sprinkles and gems. So what we had were 3 different types! 🙂 It’s fun to cook with kids! I’m always excited while baking, but this time the excitement was many time more as Nandini was also going to do it. And she was full of questions and I loved watching her little hands rolling the cookies and putting sprinkles on top and thinking that nobody is watching she would quickly put some of the sprinkles or gems in her mouth! 😀
