We pulled the Easy Bake Oven out last night to make some cookies. It was a Christmas gift for my daughter last year. I’m happy to say that it’s gotten a fair amount of use. We keep it in a room near the kitchen and I store the little pans and tools in the kitchen. I also bought a cookbook called Baking with Mommy Cookbook. It’s got easy recipes that taste good. I refuse to buy the expensive mixes.
Sometimes, we bake a small portion of whatever we’re having for dinner in the EBO. We’ve done Nachos, baked spaghetti, cheese tortillas, pizza… It’s a fun way to spend time together.
The Snowball Cookie recipe is adapted from Baking with Mommy Cookbook. Here’s what you’ll need:
- 3 Tbs. powdered sugar
- 2 Tbs. butter, softened (didn’t make it in the picture)
- 5 Tbs. flour
- 1/8 tsp. cream of tartar
- 1/8 tsp. baking soda
- shake of cinnamon
- 1/8 tsp. vanilla
- enough water to make dough
- extra powdered sugar
Combine all the ingredients except the extra powdered sugar. Go easy adding the water. It doesn’t take much. Stir it all together with a spoon until it’s well combined.
Roll the dough into balls. Our dough was too soft to roll, so we just dropped them from a spoon. Roll each cookie dough ball in powdered sugar. Bake for 6-10 minutes. The book says 10, but we found 6 minutes was enough. I think this may depend on the size of your cookies.
My dd will love this recipe! Thanks!
How fun are you!! I can’t wait til Miss M gets old enough for an easy bake oven!!
These look so yummy. I’m planning to get my dtr and EBO…we’ll definitely be trying these cookies!
I loved! My EBO…!!! What a great way to spent Mommy N Me time…
Wow! Love the recipe and am going to have to get that Cookbook! My daughter loves her EBO but I hate the expensive, nasty mixes. So it has been on the shelf for awhile. Any other GREAT ones you have please email me.
Thanks again and we will for sure be trying this one yet today!
