A Playdate.

This was after school Friday, but our Saturdays are super busy with dance class after dance class so I didn't get to blog about it until now.

M and Big A were allowed to invite a friend each and they both chose to invite a boy this time - funnily enough M invited Boy A and Big A invited Boy A. There are not enough letters in the alphabet - all M's friends seem to be M's and A's at the moment!

They decided they wanted to bake cookies, and let the boys decide what type. We ended up with a mix of Gingerbread and Chocolate Chip cookies – they couldn’t decide which to make so we sort of made both and everyone was happy.
And everyone one was happy! (Even R who didn't smile for the photo!)They ate them up and took some home to share.

Ginger Chocolate Chip Cookies
Makes 12

3 T Soymilk
¼ t Apple Cider Vinegar
½ T ground Flaxseed
3 T Margarine
½ C Sugar
½ t Vanilla Extract
¾ C Flour
½ t Baking Powder
¼ t Baking Soda
¼ t Salt
½ t ground Ginger
¼ t Cinnamon
¾ C Chocolate Chips

Preheat oven to 250F and line a baking tray with parchment paper.
In a small bowl combine the soymilk, vinegar and flaxseeds. Allow to thicken.
In a large bowl cream the margarine and sugar together until light and fluffy. Add in the vanilla and mix well.
Add the soymilk mix and combine well.
Sift in the flour – cinnamon, add the chocolate chips and stir to combine.
Scoop in heaping tablespoons onto the prepared tray, a good 5 cm apart as they spread, and bake for 12 – 14 minutes.
Cool on the tray for 5 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.
