Put a couple of 12 year-old girls in a kitchen on a Saturday afternoon and you will end up with a batch of cookies. Promise.
which can be a handy strategy if you're looking for a little somethin' sweet
These are a dense and kinda chewy cookie. We mixed up the chocolate and did a combo of semi-sweet chocolate chips and some mini white chocolate chips just for fun.
This recipe will make about 3 dozen cookies. They don't last long in our house, so I have no idea how they will fair for long term storage. Which is probably all you really need to know.
