I always knew this day was coming. Every mom of 4 boys knows this day is coming. You wonder about this day, the first time you have to start doubling recipes.
When will the tripling of recipes begin?
Welp, for this mama of 4 boys, it began the other week. With this recipe.
I doubled the recipe (which is written below as the doubled version – it makes between 3-4 dozen cookies) and it just wasn’t enough. I was hoping some would end up in the freezer. But between all the boys, a few neighbors and yours truly…GONE.
Next time…I shall triple! And we will have enough for lunch box treats 😉
