The boys rolled and cut the cookies themselves.
Out of the oven.
I got the recipe from The Petit Appetit Cookbook: Easy, Organic Recipes to Nurture Your Baby and Toddler by Lisa Barnes:
¼ cup unsalted butter
½ cup of lightly packed organic light brown sugar
½ mild molasses
1 ¾ cups unbleached all purpose flour
1 ¾ cups organic whole wheat flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/8 tsp freshly grated nutmeg
1/8 tsp ground cloves
½ tsp ground cinnamon (I usually add a little more)
1 tsp ground ginger
½ tsp salt
1/3 cup water (I usually add a bit more or it is on the dry side)
Stir butter, sugar and molasses in one bowl, and then all the dry ingredients in another bowl. Slowly mix together alternating water and dry ingredients into the butter mixture. Mix well, kneed if necessary. Roll out with a rolling pin, cut your shapes with a cookie cutter and transfer onto a baking sheet. Bake in preheated oven (350F) for 7-9 minutes. Check doneness by pressing on the cookie, if the dough springs back they are done, if not put them in a little while longer.
After the cookies were in the oven we moved onto making humus for lunch. My boys were born in Israel and raised on all the delicious Middle Eastern food that we ate there, so humus is pretty much a staple in our home.
