My oldest two whipped up a batch of these little, tasteofhome inspired, bear paws, for our snack tonight.
They were so simple, I didn't even have to help them - which I have to say, is my favorite type of snack. They rolled chocolate, sugar cookie dough (just a standard sugar cookie recipe, with 1/2 cup of bakers cocoa added, as usual) into one inch balls, and flattened them by hand.
Then, they placed them on a greased cookie sheet, and added five, slivered almond, claws to each one.
They baked them, again as usual, for 12 minutes at 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
While their cookies were cooling, and the youngest two were napping, the older four headed off to the library. And, I know what your thinking, but I did actually manage to resist the temptation, of an unguarded plate, of fresh from the oven, chocolate goodness...
...but just bear-ly.
It's great to be a homeschooler.
