Cookies don’t take that long to bake! Which is one reason why I still like to make cookies during the summer. Most take what, 8-10 minutes per batch in the oven? So much shorter than a cake, or muffins, right? Plus cookies are great for picnics, and picnics are such a summer them. Check out these summer cookies recipes that you and your kids are going to love.
