Do you know how you go to the kitchen and just want to make something simple? This Farmhouse cookie recipe is perfect. It makes a soft, vanilla- flavor cookie on its own and you can add nuts, candies, flavored chips to it and have any other flavor you desire.
Your cookie jar will never have to be empty again. Even when I don’t have anything fancy to add to the dough, a simple bit of frosting makes these seem special.
I’m stuck to my baby monitor to listen for the goat’s to kid, so I cook. I mean, what else can you do?
