memorizing the recipe by heart

burning the cookies/finding the "perfect" amount of baking time
Learning how to bake cookies from my Mother
Observing my mom prepare ingredients and mix them together
Copying my mom's way of making cookies
Watching my mom properly assemble the cookies on the baking sheet
learning how to set the oven
"as long as the cookies aren't black they should be ok"
watching them bake in the oven and seeing the cookies form properly

baking the cookies by myself for the first time
making mistakes and remembering not to repeat those mistakes
tasting the cookie dough to "see if it tastes okay"
learning how to use the electric mixer without spraying cookie dough all over the kitchen
