Happy Cookies Recipe

Update: Thanks for coming to visit this old post from almost two years ago. How time flies. To thank you for stopping by, we are giving one lucky reader a Good Cook Nonstick Covered Cake Pan (13×9). Just scroll down below the recipe to find out the details.

Jennifer posted over on Drugstore Divas’ Facebook page and asked everyone to share their fave Thanksgiving dishes. She wrote: Since Thanksgiving is next week everyone want to share their favorite thanksgiving dish or if you are making something new do tell! This will be my second turkey this year ever so I am going to try a new method :)

I don’t cook, I bake. So I’m going to be making Happy Cookies this year. And since the recipe was so popular last year (I got tons of emails asking for it), I figure I would post it on Drugstore Divas this year.

    I can’t eat chocolate as I’m allergic to it (but I love “fake” white chocolate) but my hubby and step daughter have a huge thing for chocolate, he loves milk, ESP with caramel and she loves dark. Thanks for the chance to win and I’m going to make your happy cookies for them. I think they will love them. Thanks
