Hello! My name is Angi. I am so excited to become a member of this blog! I am always trying new foods and recipes and I am excited to be able to share what I find. I am even more thrilled about discovering what others share and enjoy! I am married and have 2 children. For a few months I have been throwing around the idea of starting a blog to share foods that I enjoy. So, thanks for this opportunity.
This recipe comes from my Dad. Growing up we would make cookies on Sunday and this is by far my favorite. This recipe is doubled and makes a huge amount of cookies. I just discovered that you can scoop out the cookies onto the baking sheet and pop them in the freezer for an hour, then they can be stored in a plastic freezer bag and can be used at a later date.
