I am pretty proud of myself…I made the most delicious cookies. Good reason to be proud! We are doing The Giving Manger this Holiday season and are looking for ways to give to others.
And who doesn’t love getting cookies?
(you can read about The Giving Manger HERE)
If you shop at Trader Joes and passed by these cookies, well I am sorry. Because your life was not complete in the Holiday season! Until now… you are welcome
I crushed up a cup of these chocolate star cookies and added them to one of my favorite paleo cookies.
Rolled up little balls of amazing dough, ready for the oven!
As soon as they come out of the oven you push down a chocolate star to flatten the cookie and for the chocolate cookie star to stick. The chocolate cookie stars get so melty and are hard to resist.
Good luck trying to keep everyone’s hands off!
