Happy New Year!
While the world is resetting with juice cleanses and gym classes, I prefer resetting with a classic recipe, as a reminder to your people that they are truly amazing with or without their juice cleanses and weight lifting. And while the world is fixated on losing 10lbs and is filling our existence with messages that are telling us this is the year we become a better person, these cookies are for the people who need a reminder that you’re doing more than alright; the New Year is yours.
