easily adaptable awesome cookies

another busy, busy week for this very unorganized soon-to-be high-schooler.

BUT. 

i have another cookie recipe

for all of you busy, busy people who are in dire need of something sweet

and if you tell me "no", here are a few reasons why you have to:

a) although you may be busy doing who know's what, you need your cookie fuel for the week

b) THEY'RE COOKIES AND I DON'T CARE IF YOU'RE ON THE PHONE WITH THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES you HAVE to make these cookies

can we just admire this #almondmilkporn

yes.

yes we can.

it's just… i can't... no words.

of course in a bonne maman strawberry jam jar, because WHY NOT.

in fact, you could even eat these cookies raw if you wanted to

hmmm… healthy cookie dough anyone? it's not like it hasn't been done before or anything...

BUT SERIOUSLY. GO TO YOUR KITCHEN AND MAKE THESE COOKIES

i am 99.99992% sure that you have all of these ingredients sitting in your pantry right now just waiting to be used for this very recipe.

yes.
