PandaGirl has been begging me to "make something from scratch...ya know, without any box or anything".
Finally, after her first day of 2nd grade on Monday I pulled out a cookbook and we made--from scratch--chocolate crinkle cookies.
So not hard.
Just a little effort.
We had a blast and the cookies were great! I love these anyway, because my mother-in-law always makes them every Christmas along with a whole slew of other delectables.
Instead of gorging on all of the cookies we made, we kept a few and sent the rest to one of our neighbors who brought me yummy mashed potatoes and gravy from Boston Market when I had my tonsils out. We wanted to bless them back!
