A Whopper of a Cookie

This week's recipe was selected by Rachel of Confessions of a Tangerine Tart. I was excited but felt a little bad because our little guy is lactose intolerant and there was just no way to make the Chocolate Whopper Malted Drops on page 85 lactose free.

But Sean decided to play with us anyway...here he is waiting for the fun to begin!
Are you sure I can't eat this Mummy? It looks good!!!

Alrighty then! Let's get to work! The best part about this was watching our son deal with not wanting to get an upset tummy from eating the batter...here they are handling their spoons (they are becoming pros! And I am getting much better at letting them do it...of course I do still line them up when they get a little out of control - the cookies that is!)

The interesting part, well to me, was that whenever Sean got batter on himself he would insist that it be cleaned off immediately! Sometimes his sister would clean it up and other times the cloth would come to his rescue but he was very conscious of the issue. It's amazing that at 4 he deals with it so well!

Here are our Whopper cookies...they were huge again! I will have to move down to teaspoons because the kids just can't seem to make small cookies with tablespoons!!!

I will make sure we have more shots of Sarah next time!

Haha I love that your little helper wanted someone to clean him off NOW! Amazing! Gorgeous cookies!

I hope he didn't get a tummy ache at all. That is so hard having to decide to eat it and suffer or just not do it. Hopefully you can create one lactose free. Great job your kids look like they had a blast!

Too cute. I wonder if you could leave out the milk and get the right consistency some other way?
