...A recipe I found on the inn-terrrr-webs!!!
I collect recipes on my laptop in my favorites file like a squirrel hiding nuts for winter, the only problem is that 80% of the time when I'm pacing around my kitchen wondering what to feed this brood of mine I never think to check that file marked "Recipes to try" Dur!
Last year I had a get together that I was invited to at the very last minute, like... seriouly. 1 hour before the party started I saw the text message on my phone from that afternoon inviting me to a very impromtu Holiday gathering.
I went into a panic. I wanted to find something that I could take along with my Dirty Santa gift that the other ladies would enjoy, and make me look like a Martha clone!
She bakes! She Shops! She has a full time job and is a mother of 4! She is AMAAAAZING!
I remembered saving a recipe the night before that I had thought would be super yummy IF I replaced the premade cookie dough mix with my own... so I rushed home to whip up some cookies!
