Baking Cookies


GET A LARGE MIXING BOWL
by: Adine Cathey

AN EGG, SOME SUGAR AND SPICE,
STIR IN SOME FLOUR AND MILK
WE'RE GOING TO MAKE SOMETHING NICE.

MIXING AND STIRRING, TAKING TURNS
SOME FLOUR FALLS ON THE FLOOR,
BUT THAT'S OKAY GRANNY WILL SWEEP
WE'LL JUST DIP IN THE SACK AND GET MORE.

WITH A HANDFUL OF COOKIE CUTTERS
WE CHOOSE JUST THE RIGHT ONE,
WITH OUR SMALL HANDS, WE ROLL THE DOUGH
THIS WILL BE SO MUCH FUN !

THERE ARE DUCKS, COWS, A FAT PIG
A TEDDY BEAR, A BRIGHT STAR,
PLACE THE CUTTER IN THE MIDDLE AND LIFT
I JUST CUT OUT A SMALL CAR.

I END UP WITH FLOUR ON MY NOSE
MY CHEEK AND APRON IS COVERED TOO,
I LOOK LIKE THE MARSHMALLOW MAN
MY SISTER SAYS THAT IS SO TRUE !

CREATING COOKIES TAKE ON STRANGE SHAPES
WE CUT AND CUT AND MAKE A LOT,
SOON WE ARE OUT OF COOKIE DOUGH
BETTER GET THE OVEN NICE AND HOT.


PLACE THE DOUGH ON A BAKING SHEET
INTO THE HOT OVEN TO BAKE,
I WISH THEY WERE ALREADY COOLED
I WILL COUNT TO SEE HOW MANY I MADE.

AFTER THE COOKIES ARE COOLED
I CAN ICE THEM WITH RED, GREEN OR BLUE,
THEN WHO ALL WANTS TO EAT THESE GOODIES ?
WHY I BET DADDY...THAT'S WHO !!

@ Caitlin, I actually didn't write the poem. As you can see at the top, Adine Cathey did.
