SPECIAL CONSIDERATIONS FOR COOKING WITH CHILDREN

When first cooking with children, you may have more fun by choosing foods that don't have to be ready by a specific time. If everyone's hungry and waiting, there's a tendency to take over rather than give children time to learn.

For starters, make a simple snack together, such as this cookie recipe. Directions are included for tasks that children can help with. Calories and fat are lowered in this recipe by substituting applesauce for some of the fat.

NEW OATMEAL RAISIN COOKIES

(Makes 30 cookies)

PER COOKIE
Calories: 70 Total fat: 1.3 grams Saturated fat: .3 grams Cholesterol: 8 milligrams Sodium: 42 milligrams

3/4 cup sugar
2 tablespoons margarine or butter
1 fresh large egg
2 tablespoons lowfat milk
1/4 cup canned applesauce
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon salt
1-1/4 cup quick oats
1/2 cup raisins

(IMPORTANT: When working with an electric mixer, children need to STOP the mixer when adding ingredients or scraping down the side of a bowl.)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

1. Guide children in using an electric mixer on medium speed. Cream sugar and margarine or butter until smooth and creamy.

2. Ask child to slowly add egg. Mix on medium speed for 1 minute.

3. Child can slowly add milk and applesauce. Mix for 1 more minute. Scrape the sides of the bowl.

4. In a small bowl, help child combine together flour, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt. Add dry ingredients gradually to the creamed mixture and mix on low speed for 2 minutes, until blended.

5. Add oats and raisins and blend for 30 seconds on low speed. Scrape the sides of the bowl.

6. Child can portion dough by rounded teaspoons (about 2 inches apart) onto lightly greased cookie sheets.

7. Bake for 10 - 13 minutes until lightly browned. Cool on a wire rack .
