Welcome to the sweetest season 2018! I am so excited to be sharing a cookie recipe for the event this year.  We are raising money for Cookies for Cancer this year, a non-profit organization dedicated to funding research to help find new treatments for childhood cancer.  Since 2008, they have granted nearly $15 million to pediatric cancer research to the leading pediatric cancer centers in the US.  That has spurred 37 treatments to kids fighting cancer!




When I was asked to do this event, I immediately was sold because of how important a cause it is.  To donate and learn more, click HERE.
