Sometimes finding The Brighter Side is as simple as a delicious treat. So we have a treat for you! This is a recipe that I get asked for all the time. I'll admit, when it comes to baking, I'm not the best. Especially cakes. But these cookies have been a hit EVERY TIME! You can't mess it up. The decorating is my favourite part. I hope you enjoy these cookies as much as my children do... and my husband!
