Shopping Around the World and Friendly Fill-ins with Noelle

Today is Shopping Around the world with our pal Bacon from PigLove

From Bacon's Blog:

Sorry for the delay dear friends.  December is always a challenge for finding time to do anything, isn’t it?  Well this month for Shopping Around the World, we are going to focus on desserts/cookies or other yummy treats that you create or love to eat this time of the year.  What snack desserts do you give out or put out for guests that come over?  It can be something simple or something elaborate.
Shopping Around the World will be on Friday, December 29th.  Be sure to write down your ingredients, costs and link back to my blog so we can all drool over your dessert ❤

Our dessert is Crack Cookies. They are called Crack Cookies because they are addictive!!
