Most of the recipes I’ve seen for this call for the cookie being made from scratch. But if you’re like me, you look for shortcuts. Shortcuts just make our lives easier…work smarter not harder.

This really is the easiest dessert!

My daughter did most of the work for this one including the picture. My only complaint was…IT WASN’T BIG ENOUGH LOL. This thing was absolutely amazing.

It’s a quick weekday dessert. Or if you want to eat on it all weekend that works too. If you’re on a diet or trying to eat better, don’t let the amount of “protein” fool you, this is not Weight Watchers, or any other diet friendly. That is why I’ve only had this once or twice.
