Copycat Mother’s Circus Animal Cookies


When I was a kid, I used to love Mother’s Circus Animal Cookies.

I used to pride myself in elementary school for being such a good “sharer” since I was an only child.  However, apparently sharing doesn’t count when it comes to Mother’s cookies.

One of my friends had to stay at my house in 4th grade for a week because her mom was having surgery.  My mom packed our lunches in the morning, and when I got to lunch, my friend had Mother’s cookies in her lunchbox and I did not.

I was so mad that I didn’t talk to my friend the rest of the day… as if it was her fault that my mom packed her the cookies.

So, moral of the story=Mother’s cookies are too good to share, so make sure you have enough.  And if you don’t have enough, you can now make them!

These are so good.  I brought them to my nieces and they devoured them.





Sorry for the lack of posts this week, but make sure you check back to read my next post because I have a super cute Easter recipe for you guys and an awesome surprise. :)

What was the one snack you wouldn’t share as a kid?
