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.
