We have a tradition in our house. Well, I have one anyway. I love to bake fresh cookies every Monday.
I have four children who are all in school each day. On Mondays, they come home to fresh baked cookies. Cookies that can then be put in lunch boxes all week and snacked on after school.
I have missed a few of these cookie-baking Mondays in the past, and my kids let me know it! They complain on Tuesday mornings that there are no “treats” for school.
This week I took my favorite Snickerdoodle recipe and gave it a new twist! I love the chewy texture of Snickerdoodles, and wanted to make something fun for the kids to enjoy. By removing a few ingredients and adding some sprinkles, these cookies were a big WIN!
Do you have any family traditions that you practice on a regular basis? Do they involve sprinkles?
