When my daughter first signed up for volleyball, I had no idea what we were getting ourselves into. Sure there were practices and games, but there were all day tournaments, fundraisers, dinners, and so much more that went a long with being a part of the team. She wanted to really make a good impression on her new teammates and her coaches, so when they did a bake sale to raise money for new uniforms, she asked me to do something that would stand out.
Well, there goes my traditional chocolate chip cookies that I always make. Thankfully, I had recently seen a recipe for these non-traditional cookies on Spend with Pennies that looked pretty darn special.
When I told my daughter she said, “Oh yes Mom, please!” Being the good mom I am, I made them for her fundraiser.
She said that most of them were gone before the sale even opened. All the players and coaches tried them and bought them out. I guess she got what she was hoping for!
These are also an excellent choice when it comes to potlucks. I like to take a dessert along with a side dish just because I know that not many people think of doing that. The last time I took them to our church for a luncheon, I think they were gone before the lunch was even completely served. I had several requests for the recipe which I gladly shared with all of my friends.
