Sometimes I just don’t have the time to hang out in the kitchen mixing lots of ingredients to make cookies. To save time, I am starting to mix the dry ingredients and store them so that all I need to do is add the “wet” ingredients and mix them up.
This really saves time and my kids can enjoy their cookies faster. Feel free to play around with the ingredients. I’m sure if you add toffee chips, or peanut butter chips, the cookies would be amazing. Enjoy!
