Wishing you all a very happy new year! 
May this year bring you peace, joy, perfect health, prosperity and happiness

Hello everyone! Its been a while since I logged in or posted. It has been a very busy 4 months for me. It has been very exciting meeting many people in my town. For the holidays, my daughter's girls scouts group had a cookie swap and we had to bake 70 cookies. We looked at many recipes and tried this recipe a few times, but this one was what we liked best. It became the base for our chocolate chip, m&m and sugar sprinkled cookies. The cookies tasted delicious, was super easy and a lot of fun to make with your kids.
