Santa’s Little Helper, aka my son Gabe, has been helping me Christmas shop for Christmas presents this year. He had a few people on his list that he wanted to “buy” his own presents for. Two of those people were my grandparents. Gabe and I stayed with them briefly following my divorce, and he thinks they hung the moon. We ran to Walmart to get supplies for Christmas cookies and pick up a few gifts for him to wrap. My future chef loves to help me in the kitchen and to create his own recipes. He said he wanted to make caramel and chocolate cookies to put in treat boxes to go with his gifts, so I happily obliged. When I asked him what he wanted to call them, he said Cowboy Cookies because they look like cowboy hats. I’m not sure they look that much like cowboy hats, but they’re definitely delicious. I caught his back turned, and sprinkled some sea salt on the tops of each one.

I like these cookies because they’re simple enough that a child can easily help make them. My son loves to help me cook and he’s only 5 years old. He helps to measure and count ingredients, mix the batter, set the oven timer, and spoon the batter out on the baking sheet. It’s a great way to spend time together, teach kitchen safety, and work on basic math skills.

We love baking together, especially cookies. Whenver we get the opportunity, I like to browse the internet for sites like this one here in order to find new recipes and inspiration for things we could make together. Santa cookies are a favorite of ours in the run up to Christmas,

Personally, I would have mashed the caramel candy down but Gabe refused. The heat from the warm cookie softens the caramel candy and makes it easily bitten into. Don’t these Cowboy Cookies look delicious?

You could also make them prettier by balling them up, but I let Gabe put them on the cookie sheet with a cookie scoop. But do looks really matter if they taste good and a little boy gets to create the memory of baking cookies for his family?

While we were shopping for cookie ingredients, I noticed a display of cologne and perfume. My grandfather wears Stetson cologne, and whenever I smell it, I’m reminded of him. The gift set contains three varieties of Stetson, and it was the perfect gift from Gabe to his great grandfather. Coty Holiday Gift Sets can help make holiday shopping and gift buying a little less stressful; perfume and cologne are suitable for almost anyone.

Gabe is excited about wrapping his gift to Paw, and packaging up the Cowboy Cookies that he helped to make.

Still haven’t found the perfect gift for someone this season? Consider something homemade paired with something store bought this holiday season; you can find more ways to gift a memory this season here.

  1. Thanks for giving your ideas listed here. The other thing is that whenever a problem develops with a personal computer motherboard, persons should not take the risk with repairing the item themselves because if it is not done right it can lead to permanent damage to the whole laptop. It’s usually safe just to approach any dealer of that laptop for your repair of the motherboard. They will have technicians who may have an knowledge in dealing with mobile computer motherboard problems and can make the right prognosis and accomplish repairs.
