Karen’s Killer Fixin’s: Busy Day Cookies

It’s time for Karen’s Killer Fixin’s!

Over the years, I’ve filled two 4-inch, 3-ring binders with my own creations as well as recipes my family and friends were willing to share with me. I simply love to cook and want to share that love with my readers.

So every Friday, I share one recipe I think you and your family might enjoy. It might be a main course recipe. A cookie or baked item. Candy. Salads. Whatever strikes my eye and fancy…which today is BUSY DAY COOKIES!!

Sometimes, you simply don’t have time to make cookies…which is why I love this recipe.  Takes less than 15 minutes to make, everyone likes them, and it’s another vehicle for chocolate. And we can’t have enough chocolate recipes, right?! 🙂

I hope you enjoy today’s Killer Fixin’s. Happy eating!
