Honey Hunt Cookies Recipe From The Berenstain Bears’ Country Cookbook

  Since my kids have been little I have always allowed them to help me in the kitchen. Of coarse their favorite things to help with is the baking because they know they get to lick the bowl in the end!  It is a great time for learning and bonding.  I was recently sent The Berenstain Bears Country Cookbook which is an amazing book to add to our cookbook collection.    Berenstain Bears cook book   This book has a nice variety of 40 kid-friendly recipes which include breakfast, lunch, main meals and desserts/snacks.  Each recipe is super easy for children read and understand. Plus each recipe only has a handful of ingredients which does not complicate the recipe. So far my son and I made the Honey Hunt Cookies which are SO good!    honey hunt cookies a       Recipe Card
