As a kid I always loved when my grandmother made these for an after school snack. So when our 4 year old asked if she could learn to bake, this seemed like an obvious place to start. She has been watching cooking shows on YouTube lately and started hanging out in the kitchen when we’re baking.

These are basically a giant chocolate chip cookie, just a little better suited for adventures.
