♡ Chocolate Cut-out Cookies ♡


Credit: ultimaterollercoaster.com

      Hello my lovelies! So I have decided that this Spring Break has left me to become lazy! I have only baked once this week and I didn’t even frost the cookies! Oh well, at leat these cookies came out amazing. They dont’t even need frosting really, because these cookies are delicious all by themselves. But I do promise that I will be baking alot soon..it’s just that I have been taking advantage of this well deserved break! Anyways, this recipe was inspired by Borwn Eyed Baker, but I did change a lot of things to make this recipe my own.

1. I went to Busch Gardens this week and it was so much fun! There is this rollercoater called the Griffin that looks super scary! And with me being super scared of heights, I never even wanted to think about riding it. But I learned a lesson that when you bring your friends and you are with your brother, you have no choice. My brothers friend literaly picked me up and took me in line! Then my friends held on to me and wouldn’t let me go. SO I ended up riding the Griffin. With my eyes tightly closed, I somehow survived the first drop and I actually enjoyed the rollercoaster. So I can now say with pride that I rode the Griffin!
