These little bites of yum are on my top five favorite cookie! Living in Minnesota leaves little time to get outside and play so we parents have to come up with thousands of activities per day to entertain our children. Baking is a really fun activity that I like to use as a teaching tool. I enjoy making these with my kiddos and I hope you enjoy making them with your family too!
