Vanilla Cookie Recipe

Hannah decided to create her own cookie recipe.  The only help I offered was a suggestion to look at other cookie recipes to see if there was any ingredient that she might need to include.  At first she did not include egg and her ratios were a bit unbalanced.  She also wanted to use the zest of a lemon and orange and knew that you don't need to add salt to a recipe if you did (something she learned from Grampop!).  This is the final product:
