“It’s like fluffy clouds, Mommy!” Emily exclaims, looking at the creamy mixture they’ve created.

Adding Color and Flavor

As they add the flour and salt, Emily learns about the textures of dough. When it’s time for the strawberry extract and food coloring, her eyes widen in amazement as the dough transforms into a beautiful pink. They chat about how strawberries grow and why they’re pink, turning the baking session into an impromptu learning experience.

The Fun of Mixing

The duo then stirs in the white chocolate chips, with Emily excitedly pointing out how they look like little pearls in the pink dough. After mixing, they place the dough in the refrigerator to chill, using this time to clean up and dance around the kitchen to their favorite tunes.

Shaping and Baking

Once the dough is chilled, they preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Sarah shows Emily how to scoop the dough and roll it into balls, and together, they arrange them on the cookie sheet.
