“I tried playing around with a few recipes, and this is the one that worked out the best for my family. It's a light cookie; I found that making it into bars worked better for me, since I only had one hand and could not spoon them onto a cookie sheet. I also used a food processor to mix the batter to make it quicker and easier to do while holding my daughter. :)”
