Every time I bake cookies, I think about how when I was a little girl I wanted more than anything to be a Mom. Part of my idea of what the perfect Mom would do is bake cookies for her kids. Like, all the time. In my Mommy dreams, the Mom makes fresh baked cookies for her kids at least twice a week. Haha.
I'm now all grown up and living my Mom dream and, although I don't bake cookies on a weekly basis, when I do pull out the baking sheets, I can't help but smile in my Mommy contentment knowing that I am kinda living the dream. And it totally makes my heart smile to see how excited my kiddos get when I tell them there's fresh baked cookies in their near future.
I got this recipe out of a Gooseberry Patch Kid-Friendly Recipe Book all about raisins that I got a while back. I wanted to make a treat for the kids and I happen to have a bunch of raisins right now, so I was happy when I pulled the book off my shelf and found a recipe that I had all of the ingredients for.
I whipped these up while my little guy was napping and when my girl came home from school, there were fresh baked cookies waiting for her. It was a nice surprise for a Monday afternoon.
These cookies are thick and peanut buttery and the kids loved them! I might have eaten a few, too. Okay, maybe like four. Or five. Point is, they were yummy!
