Cooking With Leah And Sam

This afternoon after I had run on the treadmill, it was my turn to watch Leah and Sam while Mama ran. I wondered if Mama would mind if I made some home made chocolate chip cookies. Hopefully I would have them in the oven before she was through running! I decided to make them. I called Leah and Sam, who were very happy about helping, and pulled them up some
chairs to stand in. Then I washed their hands, and went into the pantry to find some chocolate chips. Amazingly, we did not have any! But we did have about three bags of butterscotch chips. I saw that we had all the ingredients for the recipe on the back, so now we were making butterscotch "cookies". Well, more like butterscotch brownies, because it said to spread the mix out in a pan. I measured the ingredients and let Leah and Sam pour it in. Sam started looking in the bowl, his head halfway in. "Don't do that Sam!" I said. "Can I look at it?" he asked. I told him he could, but he couldn't stick his face in. He smiled and put his face over bowl. I moved the bowl away. When it was time to blend in the butterscotch chips, I let Leah and Sam pour the chips in. Leah spilled some, so I told her to pick them up and put them in the bowl. Sam grabbed a handful and said, "I just put them in my mouth." Finally, the cookies were in the oven. They turned out great! Everyone liked them except for Leah, who only tried the dough, but not the cooked cookie. If you want to make them, look on the back of the butterscotch chips bag!!
