Today is Raley's 10th birthday!! For the last couple of years, he has requested store bought cookies as his birthday treat for his class. This did not hurt my feelings at all, in fact, I was kind of happy! Lately though I have been cooking more and trying more new things (like this blog!!) and a couple weekends ago when we went camping, I made these for our bring-along treat. After savoring the last one, Raley asked if I would make them for his class birthday treat and I was happy to oblige him. By the way, if you would like to know more about my fabulous, oldest clone, check out the posts about him this week on the family blog.
