Kid Friendly Kitchen Tasks for this Recipe
- Have a pear tasting with your child. Buy 3 different pears and as you slice them, have your child taste them with you. Decide which is sweeter, which is softer, and which is your favorite!
- Have your child help you measure out the spices and smell each one before you put it into the pan. Ask them if they notice any difference in the smell after the spice is heated in the butter.
- Let your child help you make the turnovers. This is a great activity for little hands. Have them stuff them, seal them, and brush the melted butter on top.
