Melt-in-Your-Mouth Moroccan Sand Cookies

Do you like cookies? Do you like using common household ingredients? Do you like minimal work for maximum desserts? Well, listen up.

Everything you need to make these cookies (yes, all of the 4 ingredients) is probably in your house right at this very moment. “Please, make these cookies,” the ingredients scream, “they’re so delicious. I want to be useful!”

See?

Simple and clean. And you’ll be happy to hear that from start to finish the whole process was about 20 minutes. 20!

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies, My Favorite!

I have to say, I wouldn’t have expected it from myself, either. Oatmeal chocolate chip cookies are my favorite? What has this world come to?

I know, I know. But rest assured, I don’t like healthy-tasting things, so these aren’t some sort of sugar-free, flax-raisin, whole wheat concoction. No way. We treat our desserts with respect around here.
