Crowd Favorite

My husband brings his lunch to work everyday, I try to be sure that it always includes homemade cookies. He often shares them with his co-workers which led to their request that I make cookies for all of them. Last week, I fulfilled that request by whipping up these cookies.


Any time of the day snack


T called me at 9:30 the morning he brought the cookies in to inform me that they had all been consumed and to let me know that I had been nick-named after several well-known bakers.
