One cookie my kids won’t get tired is the chocolate chip cookies, they like chewy, hard you name it. I always try to make it in different versions. Even when I add some chocolate chips to any cookie recipe they are happy. This one is the newest one Chewy chocolate chip cookies tried from the book Kid Chef Bakes: The Kids Cookbook for Aspiring Bakers by Lisa Huff.
Author of book Lisa is also a food blogger and she sent me a copy to review. My kids love to help with cookie baking and they helped with cracking the eggs, measuring the flour and mixing. Both extend their hand to help me to bake the cookies and also helped me in photographing it.
First part of book includes elaborate description of kitchen rules, bakers pantry, appliance, using stove, basics, terminology, skills for example how to handle yeast .
Part two includes recipes of muffins, cakes, bread, cookies, savory bakes etc.
Chapter 3 includes muffins and breads which comprises of the recipes of muffins, scones, muffins tops, monkey bread bites, homemade mini cheese bagels, honey oats bread and yogurt banana bread which I tried myself it turned out delicious.
Chapter 4 includes cakes and cupcakes which includes 14 recipes there few interesting recipes like grasshopper cake stacks, upside-down apple cupcakes, coconut explosion cupcakes.
5th chapter includes cookies and bars with 15 recipes, I tried Thick and chewy chocolate chip cookies from this section. Oat pear bras, white chocolate bloodies, strawberry cheesecake bars are in my do list.
Chapter 6 includes pies, tarts and pastries with 20 recipes, Baked peach hand pie, Old –fashioned strawberry pie, double-crust blueberry pies, caramel apple streusel pies are few , There is maple pear crisp , crostatas ( mini blueberry peach crostatas) cranberry clafoutis also there. 7th chapter is about savory baked goods. Which has breakfast strata, parmesan garlic knots, pesto straws etc.
Each recipe comes with helpful hint, troubleshooting tips, and tries instead. Most of the recipes comes with final pictures. Recipes are clearly written, making it easily understandable for future chefs. I think if a kid chef tries all the recipes in the book she or he can master the techniques quite a bit. And can continue the passion of baking. There is even some menu for Father’s Day and Mother’s Day with which they can surprise their parents. On the whole it is worth buying
Both me and my kids tried a few recipes from the book and it turned out be delicious. Only change we did is the substituted with bigger chocolate chips as we don’t have mini chocolate chips in our hand and made only half the recipe. If you want you can double the recipe and two extra egg yolks. Here comes the recipe.
