Ok my son brought over all his little friends after a long day of riding bike and of course they wanted some thing sweet. Im not really a food store type chick so there's not much fancy products in my house. but i had every thing to make these cookies. It only took about a hour and now every one is sitting on my porch stuffing there little faces. And best of all my son is soooooo PROUD of me!
