Baking With Family

Now that four of my kids are older, we still bake cookies together every year during the Christmas holidays.  I think it is a lot of fun spending time with family in the kitchen.  It is much more challenging to all cook together with teenagers and young adults, but it is important to me to have fun in the kitchen with them.  I want my kids to remember good times associated with family and food.  Baking and eating cookies bring a big smile on everyone’s face.   Everyone wants to help bake cookies or at least they want to hang out in the kitchen and sneak cookie dough when I am not watching.  Sneaking cookie dough is fine with me at least they are in the kitchen and making fun memories.

My Special Needs Son

When everyone is home and cooking in the kitchen together, I assign each of them something to do.  I have one person read the ingredients and the instructions over and over.  Reading the ingredients and instructions is a difficult job when it is so noisy in the kitchen, and everyone is asking the reader questions about the ingredients at the same time.  Caleb, my special needs son, is our recipe reader.  He has memory and processing problems and cannot make a complete sentence, but he answers short and to the point which is perfect for cooking.  He feels so important telling all of us what to do.  

Assign Everyone A Job When Baking

When we are baking, one person measures all the wet ingredients, and one person gets all the wet ingredients together for that person.  I assign the same thing for the dry ingredients.  We have a system that works, but it is loud and crazy in our kitchen with all young adult kids.  They are playing tricks on each other, sitting on the counter, throwing things to each other across the kitchen, and on and on.  They are playing, laughing and having fun.  YES! I have to tell them to get off the counter, etc., but I try not to get upset with them.  I miss them so much when they are not home that seems like all the time now they are older.  At least, during the week of Christmas, I know they will be home, and we can bake together.

Caramel Stuffed Snickerdoodles

I took our favorite Snickerdoodle recipe and stuffed it with caramel.  The caramel was a perfect match in these cookies.  When you bite into one of these Caramel Stuffed Snickerdoodles, the caramel is melted and ooey, gooey.

First Step: Cream the Butter and Eggs

  • Preheat oven 350 degrees
  • With an electric mixer, cream together the butter, shortening, and sugar.
  • Add the egg and beat until creamy.

Second Step: Dry Ingredients

  • Next, add the baking soda, salt, cream of tartar, and flour.
  • Mix until blended.

Third Step: Add Caramels

  • Unwrap the caramels.
  • Shape the dough into one tablespoon-size ball. I use a one tablespoon size ice cream scoop.
  • Wrap the cookie dough around each caramel or divide the cookie dough into two smaller balls. Press your thumb into each one. Add the caramel in the center and press the edges together.
  • Carefully roll into a ball.

Fourth Step: Cinnamon and Sugar

  • Add the cinnamon and sugar in a separate small bowl.
  • Roll the cookie dough ball in the cinnamon-sugar mixture.

Lastly, Bake the Caramel Stuffed Snickerdoodles

  • Place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  • Bake for 12 minutes and remove from the baking sheet. These cookies firm up as they cool.
  • Makes 24 – 1 tablespoon size cookies.

My disclaimer:  These Caramel Stuffed Snickerdoodles are meant to be eaten right out of the oven or reheated in the microwave for 10 seconds.  Once the caramel cools down, it will harden and is not as fun to eat.

  1. Wow these look amazingly delicious. I made regular snickerdoodles for Christmas but now I so wish I would have added caramel to them. Totally will add the next time I make them though. Thanks, Diane 😉
