Apples For Teachers

I admit that one of the things I miss most about teaching are the treats. I know not exactly the response you expect from someone as excited about education as I really honestly am… but it’s the truth. It seemed between my two classes someone was always celebrating something. Well I think we should celebrate teachers at the start of the year, get them as excited about a fresh start as we are.  My son went back to preschool this week and we made these cookies for his teachers.

I got the recipe from here

  1. Start by making your dough – the above recipe was good but the cookies came out crumbly- I added an extra 5 minutes baking and it made it better. My son loves helping me bake and it’s a fun thing “special event” you can do at home if a younger sibling is napping. I try to get all the ingredients ready so he can just pop them in.
  2. While the cookies are baking gather your materials for the apple bags. You will need some paper bags, zip locs,  red crayon or marker, scissors, and green pipe cleaners.
  3. Color your bags red.
  4. When the cookies are cool pop them in the zip loc.
  5. Pop them in the paper bag and cinch the top with a green pipe cleaner bent into a leaf.
  6. Trim the top and it’s ready to be given to your teachers!

    I am so glad I am not the only one who misses the treats from teaching:) I taught elem. and there was often a cupcake or piece of cake given in love.
