Chocolate Chip Cookie Boats: Roll, roll, roll the boats …
These are made of very simple pastry made of well known ingredients. The shape of the little boats is formed by tablespoon’s back and, when baked, filled with any kind of spread.
So, if you have kids, or live in a kids’ crowded neighbourhood, think about making these boats to make them smile.
Here you can see the roll cut to equally measured parts sufficient for one boat:
Now, here are six spoons placed on a sheet cake pan. I decided to cover the handles before I put the pan into the oven just to make myself sure that nothing bad could happen. Let me say now, after the boats were done: nothing happened. Everything is all right with the spoons. Just be careful not to touch them before they cool completely. Trust me on that one. I was rushing the thing more than necessary and my fingers payed the price.
When the cookie boats were done, I was interested to see the reactions so several kids came to taste the boats. They were filling them with Nutella, Condensed Milk Spread and M&M’s. They really enjoyed the idea and tasted all of the options. It has turned to be a high quality time spent together since we all had a lot of fun.
