We interrupt the regularly scheduled healthy cooking with some decadent, tasty, buttery, gooey cookies.
I know that I needed to bake today. I have 14 daycare kids here today and I NEEDED to bake something for them. I was thrilled to find a simple, quick recipe to make.
But I didn't have the butter!! Can you believe it, I ran out of butter! So the husband was nice enough to run to the store to buy some butter this morning!!
