Cookie Decorating
Kids Cooking Party

For a cookie decorating kids cooking party kids get a chance to get a hands on  experience, decorate the finished product and be able to eat what they created. Another option for the party is to make the dough ahead of time and just have the cooking party do the rolling out the dough and decorating.

Once you know the number of children coming go through the list of things needed especially utensils, bowls, etc. If you need extra ask friends or family if you can borrow some items for your cookie decorating kids cooking party.

Cookie Decorating Recipe

We are going to follow the recipes from the following page- cookie recipes. You can choose one of the three cut out cookie recipes on this page- basic sugar cookie dough, simple sugar cookie recipe, or brown sugar and spice cut out cookies. Any of these recipes will make a great dough for the cookie decorating kids cooking party.

When preparing the recipe allow kids to take turns adding and stirring ingredients in a large mixing bowl so everyone gets a turn. You should be able to use the dough without chilling it for several hours. When dough is complete give each child a portion of the dough and allow them to roll out the dough on a floured surface. Cut out cookies with cookie cutter and place on cookie sheet. Have an adult bake and allow cookies to cool. While you are waiting for cookies to cook and cool, prepare another recipe you have planned, decorate aprons, chef hats or play cooking games.

Set table with frosting, table knives and sprinkles. Allow kids to decorate and place on a paper plate or shallow box to take home.

Cookie Decorating Kids Cooking party- Cookie Pops

If you'd like to keep the cookie party simpler have the kids prep cookie pops and decorate when they have cooled.

They are easy to make using the same cookie dough recipes suggested above, cut circles out of the rolled dough. Place on a cookie sheet leaving room for sucker sticks. Press a stick into each cookie and bake. The cookie will rise over the stick and hold it in place.
