Not wanting to get into my favorite fall flavors of apple, pumpkin or cinnamon just yet, I went for something fun that I knew my kids would love.
Enter this creation:
This recipe came from Taste of Home magazine. The cookies are larger than your average cookie, but so delicious! Soft & chewy, yet crunchy all at the same time.
They are an easy cookie to make too. Nothing complicated here.
