Thinking about baking cookies makes me nostalgic for being a worry-free kid, and licking the batter with my momma and sister. At the same time, it makes me excited to get to make them with my future kiddos. For now, Figgy enjoyed the moment but I felt guilty not to share with her.
Another reason why I love them? Because they are filled with chocolate, my favorite food! 😉 I will always choose a chocolate chip cookie over any other cookie.
