sweet + salty cookies.

(this somehow got deleted from the blog? weird. here it is again in case you were wanting to make some cookies--like me!)

i have been holding out.
i have come across the best cookie recipe!
right after my sister-in-law had her baby,
a friend brought her these cookies.
and cookies, being my weakness,
so i had to try one.
and then shawn had to try one.
and then i had to get the recipe.
and i tweaked it, to maybe...
i can already tell that these are going to be our go-to cookies this summer.

  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar

I agree. They were the BEST. I even had a few, and I am not a BIG cookie fan. I like them but can easily live without. Thanks for sharing the recipe. Maybe you can bring a batch to Memorial Day Campout.

I am not a huge cookie person either, like I LOVE cupcakes, but I never crave chocolate chip cookies. Well these are so good! I wonder if we could use whole wheat flour and add nuts. Lunch anyone?! :)
Thank you for sharing! Our home group loved them too!!
