Grandma’s Helper

I love to go to Grandma’s house
And help her with her baking.
She never seems to get upset
With the mess I’m always making.
I help her measure out the milk,
Then slowly add the butter.
And while she stirs the dough up good,
I get the cookie cutter.
She rolls the dough out on a board
And then begins to cut,
And next we sprinkle all the tops
With sweets and coconut.
She puts them in the oven then
And says they’ll be out soon.
And now the part that I like best—
I get to lick the spoon!
