Family cooking: chocolate and orange cookies

Gastronomy is a way to express the interests of a family and an opportunity to share common tastes, learning and good talks.

Making homemade cookies with children is a leisure option with multiple benefits. Not only does it allow us to spend fun and quality time with the little ones, but it is also a great alternative for a rainy afternoon, a weekend without plans or a modest vacation, without trips away from home. Immersing yourself in the kitchen with little ones fosters their creativity, helps them appreciate home-cooked food, and opens the doors to new skills.

We propose this easy cookie recipe to spend one afternoon with the family.

  1. Take a large bowl, add the flour, the sugar, the two eggs, the yeast and the vanilla essence.
