Cooking with the Kiddos: Muffins with Cream Cheese “Frosting”

20160406_145231

Lately, Audrey has been asking to look through my one cookbook I have here with me in Alaska (The Wellness Mama Cookbook). She loves cooking with me and it’s fun to watch her culinary skills develop, like when she starts recognizing smells and perfects her egg whisking. The other morning she chose muffins. We made them and added pecans to some…yum! And the girls enjoyed them.

Today, we continued the fun and created our own cream cheese “frosting” recipe and decorated our muffins (our recipe is down below).  Mira had the genius idea to put the frosting in sandwich bags and cut off the corners so we could use them as cheap pastry bags. It worked perfectly. The girls made all sorts of designs and gobbled them up!

Frosting Sharing 🙂

Here’s our recipe:

  • ½ cup cream cheese
  • 1 T milk or water (add more or less depending on consistency you want)
  • 1 T honey (optional)
  • Blueberries (optional; I thawed about 15 frozen blueberries and it turned the frosting purple, and I found myself singing Purple Rain as a tribute to Prince)
  1. Put everything in a bowl.
  2. Use an electric mixer (or whisk) to combine ingredients into desired frosting-like consistency.
