Happy Friday! This has been the longest week ever. This was the last week before summer vacation and the kids have counted down every.single.day. They have made so many plans and are excited to get them started.
I usually have a special treat waiting for them on Friday after school to celebrate the weekend. I decided to make this one extra special, since it marks the beginning of summer. I made the best chocolate chip cookies ever, from scratch and they have a special ingredient that sets them apart.Even the hubby, who doesn’t usually have a sweet tooth, loves them. Fair warning, you won’t eat just one and they will became fast favorites in your house.
I will make them into ice cream sandwiches to mark the occasion. This recipe makes a larger batch, so there will be plenty to share with friends. This is also a great Father’s Day dessert and if you are still trying to figure out what to make, my current favorite Summer Salad makes a great side dish.
Have a great weekend everyone!
