But I like baking to be fun, so if it takes a few batches until edible goodness, I’m alright with that. If you’re in need of something new to whip up this season or completely unsure of what to bake, these are some of my ultimate favorite cookies. The only recipe I can take credit for is the cake pops, and that baking experience was one of those that started off as a disaster and ended in deliciousness! Happy Eating!
