I was scrolling through Instagram one day recently and saw that one of my friends had posted about a birthday of a family member. She said her family member did not like cake, so they made him a cake out of his favorite cookies, these cookies. I immediately went on a search for a recipe and came across these. I am so glad I did!! These cookies are so moist, and as an added bonus, you get small bits of vanilla wafer cookies right in the cookie!
I had a friend come spend the night last week when her hubs was out of town. I had to make a treat of course! Perfect opportunity to test these babies out. They were gobbled up by us and the kids in a hurry! Enjoy :)
