In this lesson, we talk about how nice it is to and in which ways we can share with others by reading Olivier Dunrea’s Gossie published by Houghton Mifflin Company. Gossie is a little gosling who one day loses her favorite bright red boots but ends up with a new friend! We also share a very special family cookie recipe so that your children can share something special with whomever they’d like!
Many thanks to Olivier Dunrea for giving me his permission to share this wonderful story with you. We would love to share some homemade cookies with him one day!
Candace’s Chocolate Chip Biscotti
2 Cups of flour
1/2 Teaspoon of baking soda
1/4 Teaspoon of salt
2 Large eggs at room temperature
1 Cup of brown sugar
1 Cup of chocolate chips (we just chop up a dark chocolate bar!)
Preheat oven to 350 F and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
Using an electric mixer, beat the eggs and sugar together at high speed until a pale yellow color and thick consistency.
In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda and salt.
Once the egg and sugar mixture is ready, stir in the flour mixture.
Spread out on the cookie sheet and bake for 20-25 minutes.
Enjoy these cookies with a nice glass of milk or hot cocoa!
