For as long as I can remember I have always loved to be in the kitchen. As a child, my grandma would let me help her in the kitchen all the time. With her patience and kindness, I discovered my love for inventing recipes and trying out new ones.

I have been wanting to get my kiddos in the kitchen more to hopefully share my love for baking and cooking just as my grandma did for me. I’d say they love baking more than cooking for now and since my kiddos have been craving these cookies it’s the perfect time to share them.

There was a time when my kids would refuse to eat anything sourdough so thus began my adventure to add it into recipes that they already loved to see if they would eat it. Now not only do they eat several recipes that include sourdough they also eat sourdough bread!

Since I am working on a cookbook I want to share this recipe in hopes that you will write a review/feedback in the comments section to tell me what you think.
