The Best Cookies EVER.

Monday, May 8, 2017

As a mom I've come to the conclusion that in order to have a happy family that I need to keep cookies in the jar at ALL TIMES. Ok, I'm totally joking! But in all honesty it helps. 

When the babes are cranky throw a cookie their way, when their driving you insane give them a cookie, and when your husband has had a stressful day at work hand him a cookie before bed. 
I tell Barrett about three time a month that baking "nurtures my soul" and it really does. So in reality be baking helps out everyone.

I've tried several homemade cookie recipes and I think I have finally hit the jackpot of all cookies.

It's super simple and SUPER yum.

Check out the recipe below if you want a happy family ;)
