Saturday morning baking has become a ritual for me. There is something therapeutic about a pan of freshly baked cookies resting on the counter. I’m sure you know that a good cookie recipe isn’t hard to come by. However, I have fallen in love with this particular recipe. They are super easy to make and delightfully addicting. Jason and I recently went through a whole batch in less than a week… don’t judge us! They’re super great dipped in coffee.

The cold months are coming and this is the perfect recipe to keep you warm! When you make these cookies, don’t forget to tag Sweet Pea Living on Facebook or Instagram and use the hashtag #sweetpealiving to share it. I would love to see how your recipe turns out for you!
