Back to school!! Today was my kiddos first day of school, and it is kind of a tradition that on the first day I sent them with homemade cookies and a little note that says “Have a great day!!” So for today I wanted something for them and me since I totally needed a chocolate fix after sending 2 or my 3 babies off. Yeah, I’m not gonna lie, I shed a couple of tears.
Here are my big kids all ready to go. Brody, on the right, hates pictures. So that’s why his smile makes him look like he’s in pain 🙂 Gotta love boys!
My sister-in-law actually gave me this cookie recipe a while ago to try. I’ve kind of been putting it off because I don’t really like cookies from cake batters. To me a cookie is just suppose to have kind of a dense consistency, and most cake box cookie recipes turn out so fully you might as well just make it into the cake and cut yourself a small piece. I actually really like this recipe though. Still a little fluffy, but the cream cheese makes this cookie so yummy!! I used devils food cake just cause I wanted that chocolate flavor to really come out over the cream cheese, and I feel like they are perfect, but use your favorite. Also, just a heads up, that it take a little longer for these cookies cause you have to refrigerate them for two hours or so. But other then that, this recipe is so easy and delicious!! Enjoy!
