Whipped Cream with Blueberry Crisp

When little kids come to dinner at our house, I like to give them a job. It gives them something to do, helps me out, and … it makes them feel special.

There’s so much for kids to learn in the kitchen: Listening to instructions, patience with getting the end result (in this case, whipped cream!), team work (the twins had to share the job).

Oh, and I must mention, they are using a KitchenAid hand-mixer. :) (There’s new KitchenAid Facebook news at the bottom of this post.)

There’s also patience needed on my part, to supervise the job and be willing to take some extra time, and deal with a little extra mess.

There’s always a sense of accomplishment for the little ones, knowing they helped with the meal.

And then getting a little treat at the end – the batters.

Oh, the batters.

It’s hard to not get any on your face!

The best part of baking!

We all enjoyed this lovely Blueberry Crisp that I revised with Pamela’s Baking Mix. Our friends have wheat-free allergies, and I am SO glad that they turned me on to this excellent baking mix. You can also buy it in bulk online!

I hope you love it as much as we did!

Oh, and don’t forget for the crisp portion: You can make and freeze extra batches of the topping for a quick dessert when last-minute company comes!

If you freeze the topping, and use frozen blueberries, it’s an EASY dessert to make for last-minute company! It’s become a new favorite, go-to recipe for me! I love it when I don’t have to put a lot of thought into what I’ll make for dessert, partly due to being “prepared” with all ingredients on hand.

How do you do with little kids in the kitchen? Would you rather get the jobs done yourself, or do you enjoy letting them help?
