National Peaches and Cream Day | Peaches & Cream Pie Cookies
I was feeling uninspired for National Peaches and Cream Day so as I usually do when such things occur, I took to the internet and tried to find an innovative, cute, and tasty-looking recipe to make for the occasion. One of the first recipes that came up, and certainly the first recipe that make me perk up my eyes at the screen was Stephanie’s Peaches & Cream Pie Cookies. The recipe I’m sharing with you today is hers, and is being used with her permission, because I just couldn’t try to adapt and hope for the best with these beauties.
If you haven’t clicked over to see her recipe, you really should. Not only is she obviously a better baker than I am, which is pretty evident in how perfect her cookies look compared to mine, but she has some fabulous recipes that you could get lost in, in a good way. She made these pie cookies for her kids to take to school for Teacher Appreciation Day. So sweet!
Yes, folks. These cookies are unbelievably awesome. You won’t want to stop eating them. They are flaky and sweet, and will be everyone’s favorite treat. Do you like what I did there? 😉
Enjoy, and thank Stephanie for this recipe by visiting her blog, The Tiptoe Fairy!
