This is a wonderful, easy and delicious recipe. It's also a lot of fun to make it with your children.
My daughter really likes to help me in the kitchen. She's only 11 but might have a future in the culinary world ... hopefully, in Paris! But for now, all I can do is to instill in her a love for cooking and baking.
So here's what we made together. Enjoy!
