We are taking a trip this coming weekend and I want to take cookies with us for a snack. I found a recipe for Dishpan Cookies on AllRecipes (click the link to view the original recipe). I used that as a base and moved forward from there. I made changes to suit our family.
The kids made these this afternoon right before daddy got home. What a nice treat after a long day of work!
