Hey guys, happy Monday!

It such a great time, big hit.. we will definitely be doing it next year.. the more the merrier! 😉

As part of my three cookies I made, I took a stab at cake batter cookies. Cookies + cake batter = match made in h.e.a.v.e.n.
You know you’ve come along way with your baking skills when your sister asks if you made them or bought them. I can’t tell if that was a compliment or insult. HAHA.  They are oh so simple, oh so delicious and oh so mouth watering!
Place some holiday M&Ms in them and you are golden. ENJOY!
Ps. I just realized I bombard you with tons of cookie pics, hope you don’t mind too much 😉
