Math Cookies

I baked some chocolate chip cookies for my students just two days ago. They loved it so much that they asked me for the recipe. So I thought, well…. why not let them work for it?

So I created a math cookie recipe using a simple baker’s percentage where the base is the amount of flour. Screen Shot 2014-10-01 at 5.06.15 pm

This is free for download here. Your kid simply has to use a calculator to figure out the mass of the remaining ingredients and follow the instructions to have a bunch of glorious cookies.

Cream the butter and sugars first. Creaming the butter ensures that air is incorporated into the butter, thus making them lighter and more crispy.

Add in the chocolate chips last to avoid smooching them in your mixing process.

Dollop them onto the baking tray. It's not necessary to grease the tray. I greased mine by accident, but subsequence batches weren't greased coz the oil and butter makes the cookies very non-stick.

After letting the cookies cool off, pack them into little packs and share the love!

You’ll be a little shocked how soft the cookies turn out a first, but once they are cooled, they are the crispest lightest bestest cookies you’ve ever had!

So give it a try and have your kids enjoy math and cookies at the same time!
