My children were in VBS this last week. If you have not had the chance to put your children in Vacation Bible School yet, look into a local church that has the program because it really is an amazing program. Next year I am looking forward to volunteering as well. Anyways the volunteers did such an amazing job this week I wanted to something nice for them. So I figured I should use my baking skills to do that. I baked these cookies. So I had a total kitchen FAIL when I first made these. In all my excitedness (totally new word) I forgot to put eggs in my dough. Yeah seriously bone head move. The original recipe calls for you to refrigerate the dough for 4 to 6 hours. So I did that. Well when I pulled the dough out 6 hours later it was like a hard rock. I knew that was not right. So I went and looked at the recipe again and ding, the light bulb totally appeared over my head and I knew I had forgotten the eggs. So I redid it all and adapted the recipe. The cookies are amazing and the VBS workers loved them. So win win!
Recipe from How Sweet Eats adapted by me
