Crumby!

Recently, my son had to say “farewell” or “see you later” to one of his dearest friends who had been relocated here in a transient situation like many of  us.  Their dear teacher gave me permission to bring in some treats, with that….

Thinking and thinking what to bring in???? Something easy to transport, something the kids will enjoy…cupcakes, no! Something simpler.  What did this little boy from Thailand truly enjoy, you ask?   None other than good old-fashioned chocolate chip cookies.  Bingo!

With that I made a giant chocolate chip cookie in a pizza pan, served to the children like a slice of pizza!

Added a little hand-made message and voila, it felt genius but really just FUN!!!!

I used a classic chocolate chip recipe and filled the pizza pan with all the dough.  Cooking time varies based on you pizza pan, but approximately 20 minutes or until golden at 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

What else can you tell your nine year old son when he is so sad…It is just CRUMBY to see your friend go!  and yes, you will miss him but thanks for technology and the sometimes “small” world where we live, you may cross paths again soon!

With that a BIG HUG….
