When Kev and I wanna do something sweet for each other, it often involves food.
A bad day at the office? I cook up a delicious dinner waiting for him when he gets home.
I'm exhausted and wanna sleep in on a Saturday? I wake up to homemade pancakes in bed.
So when he told me he was craving some of my cookies, I decided to create something new for the recipe rolodex and holy shiz, these did not disappoint!
Bonus points? Snickerdoodles are his favorite -- definitely got some major wifey points when he got home last night!
