Oh these cookies! They come together super fast and give you that cookie fix you need without making thousands and leaving you feeling guilty. They are hearty, naturally gluten free (no weird flours), and so, so good warm with a glass of milk. They are another go-to when I need a quick dessert. I will also admit that I love this cookie dough and may or may not consume a few cookies worth that way. 😊 We put chocolate chips in them because my family thinks a raisin starring in a cookie is evil, and I might have to agree. Especially if you are tricked and eat a cookie thinking it has chocolate chips and it turns out to be raisins. 😲 Now would be a great time to try these with our kiddos around more and eating us out of house and home!
