I was somewhat in a panic over finding the recipe for these cookies. Valentines Day is approaching, and I like it as an excuse to bake these. Once I found it, I thought I’d toss it on here to share. Now I know the recipe will never be lost. Oh, pardon me, last batch needs to come out.
I’m not much of a cookie person. I do enjoy a chocolate crinkle, but I’m more into mixing something up and putting it in the oven. However, parenthood and cookies go hand-in-hand for me. If I feel the need for a baking project that involves Roan, we’ll whip these up or some muffins.
Roan helps with the kiss unwrapping and takes it very seriously. If you help, they must be put in the bowl properly. He’s very systematic about it.
I believe this came from Better Homes and Gardens, but I think I ripped this off from my doctor’s office and didn’t get the full page. My apologies.
I may credit Cynthia Lustig, nice job girl!
