Inside: The ultimate selection of Father’s day cookies that are simple to make, but will result with a happy dad. These treats would be great to make up as a gift pack, or to hand out for morning or afternoon tea. Selection includes decorated cookies, plus recipes for good old fashioned cookies that dad will simply love.
If there is one thing you can be sure of, it’s that dad’s love their food. It makes me chuckle every single time, when my husband comes home from work, opens the door and says “Ohhh, someone’s been baking”. The slightest aroma of freshly baked food and suddenly they are running to the kitchen looking for what treats they might find.
Then of course once they see that the baking is fun food like cookies or cupcakes, they suddenly turn into little school boys with puppy dog eyes, desperately wanting to tuck in.
The way to a man’s heart is truly though his stomach. That saying never get’s old does it!
This selection of Father’s day cookies is one that the kids can help you make. All the cookies are super simple which means you can have some fun in the kitchen prior to Father’s day. Dad will love the cookies even more knowing that the kids helped to bake them.
Whether type of cookie that dad likes, you will be able to find something for him here.
