Cooking with kids: Pie For Breakfast

It’s obvious that I love cooking, since I’m a chef. But one of the best things that I do is cook with my sons.

Yesterday, when I asked my four year old, Kaleb, what he wanted for breakfast,  he said “PIE! What four year old wouldn’t! While he ate a bowl of cereal, we put the ingredients together to make breakfast pie!

We decided we wanted to put apples in our pie, so I let him help me peel several Fuji apples. I hate peeling apples!

Kaleb loves adding the ingredients. This makes me a little nervous since baking requires precise measurements and I’m a control freak, but he rarely spills!

There is always time to play Peter Pan! Argh!

Now for the kneading!  Then I realized that I left my roller at work.  Never fear, you can always use a can as a roller,  just be sure to clean it first.

I thought it would be fun to make personal apple tarts. Just lightly sprayed the muffin tin with pan spray.

I couldn’t find Mom’s cookie cutters so we used Kaleb’s Play dough cutters. Again, I washed them first! 🙂

We made apples and hearts and used these to top off the crust.

After sprinkling with cinnamon sugar, this is our final result!
