During this phase of lock down and uncertainty, one of the ways to remain calm is to create. Creating not only gives you a sense of direction and channelizes your energy into something positive, but it also gives you hope. I find baking immensely rewarding but now accompanied by family in the kitchen, the joy is ten-folds. We are baking a lot of cookies.
If you always wanted your kids to start baking, there is no better time than now. Children are scared and lonely just like adults even though they may not know how to express it. Baking distracts them, teaches them a new skill and the allows them to use their hands and their minds to be creative.
These caramel choc chips cookies are not only super easy, they can be adapted to add nuts, seeds, dried fruits. What’s more, they are eggless! I hope you enjoy baking them with your family.
