Snickerdoodle Minis

IMG_4226.JPGGuess what Wednesday, September 21st is?!?!? It is two things: (1) It is the last day of summer insert sobs here, and (2) it is also the last day of my summer/pre-fall term for my masters program insert YAYS here! I have made it a fourth of the way through graduate school!

In order to celebrate, I have decided to make my special snickerdoodle minis for everyone in my life who has made this past term at STEP so meaningful!

These snickerdoodle minis are my #1 go-to when I want to spread joy and give smiles. They are like … hugs in a bag! img_4232
