What do you bake with your kids?

I've decided that this afternoon we're going to bake biscuits (cookies). I've found a really simple recipe for plain biscuits in a parenting magazine. My 3-year old wants me to adapt it to make chocolate biscuits, but I don't have any chocolate in the house! (A dire situation indeed, and an unusual one for this household, lol!) So I'm going to mix in chopped up pieces of kit-kat. And we'll see how it turns out!! Wish me luck, lol! What do you bake with your kids? I'm always looking for new ideas. How do they turn out? Any funny experiences? And do you all have fun or do tempers sometimes fray?

Baking can be fun with the kids but it can also be stressful. My daughter is now at the age where she has some patience to bake with me and not make a big mess. My son however who just turned 4 will stick his fingers into everything we're trying to make so I try and have him get occupied with something else. We sometimes make chocolate chip cookies or brownies. We sometimes will also make cherry turnovers too. For this I buy the frozen box of Pepperidge Farms pastry dough. All you have to do is roll out the pastry dough and cut into small squares. Spoon some cherry pie filling on top of each one and turn over one side diagonally to make a triangle. It takes about 10 minutes in the oven. When I take them out of the oven I like to sprinkle some confectioner's sugar on top. They're really very good and so easy to make.
