Appreciating Our Teachers

It’s Teacher Appreciation Week. And we like to celebrate the small things in our house. So, we talked about teachers. Practiced our Spanish. Played Circle Time. Then, baked some cookies for Jack’s preschool teachers. And, of course, sampled the treats to make sure they were good enough to give.

Teacher's Treats

I discovered the nifty "Teacher's Treats (to share or not to share)" printable over at the Eighteen25 blog. Glued it on some heavier decorative paper. And wrote "From, Jack" on the back. Wa-la.

Jack and I baked a batch of Oatmeal-Chocolate Chip cookies. Our fav. Okay, maybe just mine. But Jack does like chocolate chips.

Then I wrapped up and tied with some decorative twine. And Jack hand-delivered them this morning. 

And to all the other teachers out there: Thanks for helping our kids grow!

Betty Crocker's Oatmeal-Chocolate Chip cookie recipe 

1 1/2 cup brown sugar
1 cup butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 egg
2 cups quick-cooking oats
1 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips (6 oz)

Heat oven to 350 degrees. In large bowl, stir brown sugar and butter until blended. Stir in vanilla and egg until fluffy. Stir in oats, flour, baking soda and salt. Stir in chocolate chips.

Drop dough by tablespoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheet, about two inches apart.

Bake 9 - 11 minutes or until golden brown. Cool slightly, then remove from sheet to let cool entirely.
