kitchen safety rules
This is important to teach your children! Even if you have already talked about it before, please, don't skip this part of your lesson. If you are afraid that your child is getting bored with your repetition of kitchen safety let your child teach YOU the rules.

You can also print off food sanitation and kitchen safety rules checklist/charts to keep in your kitchen at the link above.

Before preparing the following recipe review kitchen safety and rules, see the link above.

Yogurt in a Cup

  • 1- 1/2 Cups flour
  • 1/2 Cup of butter, melted
  • 6 Tablespoons powdered sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 6 teaspoons cold water
  • Large container of Yogurt, any flavor
The chef-in-training can do all these steps then have an adult bake in the oven. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a bowl add flour and powdered sugar. Mix together. Add butter and stir until mixture is crumbly. Slowly stir in cold water and vanilla. Mix thoroughly. Grease muffin tins and spread dough in each of the muffin cups. Press dough up along sides of each cup. Bake until golden brown, about 10-15 minutes. Allow to cool, fill with yogurt and serve. Makes about 6.

We used custard cups in this picture, they also work well, but muffin cups are usually more available.
