Tobes & Wesley love baking, especially when it comes to cookies! 🍪

Hey, Adam here! We wanted to share with you one of our favorite cookie-cutter recipes!

These are such a fun treat to make with your kids (or anyone!) and a great way to get festive for any special occasion! We make them for Bethany’s birthday, Valentine’s Day, Christmas and sometimes at other times of the year when we want a yummy treat.

I grew up making these cookies at my grandma’s house all the time and it’s really fun to re-live those memories when making them. Now we get to share those special moments with our kids and make new memories too!

Here’s a video of us making these treats at Christmas time: HubbyCam Ep 7.
