Creative Cookie Exchange
I usually post on Tuesday, Friday, and Saturday,
However, I found this Creative Cookie Exchangewith my food posts being Friday.
Blog Hop that I wanted to participate in.
So, today is a bonus post with a delicious recipe.
This will be great for after school snacks or lunchboxes.
For the homeschoolers, this is a great any time snack.
I don't know about ya'll, but I often
catch my kids (hubby, too) eating brown sugar
straight out of the container.
Usually this is while they are making cookies
or oatmeal or something, but they are sticking
their fingers in there and eating brown sugar straight up.
So a brown sugar cookie is a big hit around here.
I add a hint of cinnamon and nutmeg to make it even better.
Quick to make and easily doubled,
this recipe also freezes well. Just roll
the dough in a log, wrap and freeze.
