It’s Sibling’s Day!!! My mom used to make friendship cookies for my brother and me on the regular. These seemed to always bring us together. She seemed to always make them on the days we needed them the most, too. I will never forget the scent of her taking them fresh out of the oven… SO yummy!! So enjoy the simplicity of these DELICIOUS friendship cookies. Maybe they can bring joy to your family like they did mine!
