I can't believe summer is almost over. I don't want it to go away but then I really enjoy fall. The leaves changing, the cool weather, the fall clothes...a wonderful time of year. Oh yeah, and school starts again too - that isn't one of my favorites - but oh well.
Anyway, here is a new cookie recipe I made over the weekend. My family and I enjoyed them, new cookie recipes are always fun to try. With a glass of cold milk these cookies are yummo!
