You may not know this, but today, (December 4th.), is National Cookie Day.
What does that mean?
stuffing my face with cookies like Cookie Monster on crack forcing myself to eat cookies today with the boys to celebrate, I’m also going to share a recipe with you that you’re going to want to put away and save for those days when you have nothing better to do than make cookies (which should be more often than it is!)
You know that I’m all about easy. Especially when it comes to desserts. I have no problem whipping out a box or bag, adding some eggs and butter, and calling it “homemade” because I was at home and I made it. We’re just living in another time. I shouldn’t have to spend 4 hours in the barn (which we don’t have) churning butter by hand in order to make a cake that’s considered “homemade.’ There are some things I’ll go the extra mile for, but desserts just aren’t one of them.
This is especially the case when trying to create something with the boys. The easier the recipe is (easier = less ingredients) the better chance of us trying it.
Cookies that even Santa Claus will love!
When I ran across this great recipe using only 4 ingredients to make chocolate chip cookies, I knew I had a winner. Not only is it the perfect recipe to try with the boys, but it also helps celebrate 3 major holidays. You’re probably thinking I’m talking about Christmas, Hanukkah and Festivus. Sorry…I guess I wasn’t thinking that major.
These are perfect for recognizing that-
December is National Peanut Butter Month
December 4th is National Cookie Day, and
2016 is the Year of the Chocolate Chip.
(OK, I just made up that last one, because everyone knows that every day, month and year is perfect for chocolate.)
Hope you enjoy the recipe!
