When I started this blog last summer, I don’t think I fully comprehended what I was in for.  Really all I knew was that I was excited to share recipes with my friends and family.  What I didn’t know was how obsessed with lighting I would become.  Yes, you read correctly.  Getting the right lighting to make your food photography pop is enough to make a person pull her hair out.  I didn’t know how many amazingly talented people there are on the this thing called the world wide web!  And when I started this blog I had no idea what camaraderie I would feel with other bloggers and how wonderfully supportive the whole community is.

Which brings me to why I am so excited for today’s post!  I have been drawn to Cassie since I first started following her over at Bake Your Day.  There are just some people that seem to exude sunshine and have such a bright personality and positive attitude and Cassie seems to be one of those rare people.  She is always posting the most delicious recipes with beautiful photos and also shares stories about her sweet relationship with her husband.  I am so grateful and honored to host her here today!

Hello Satisfy My Sweet Tooth readers!  I am Cassie and I blog about food and life at Bake Your Day.  I love food, and people, and life and I was so thrilled when Mercedes asked me to guest post for her.  One thing that I love so much about blogging is all of the other amazing and talented bloggers out there.  Mercedes is one of them!  We have similar writing and cooking styles so I am excited to share a new recipe with you today!

It’s absolutely no secret that I love cookies.  But with attempts at starting the year on a healthy note, a big batch of cookies is not exactly a smart move.  I’m pretty sold on these individual batches of cookies.  What’s not to love about individual servings?!  I started playing around with the recipe after I made this big oatmeal cookie.  It’s so fluffy and just sweet enough.  I topped it with sprinkles because, well, who doesn’t love sprinkles?

Thanks Mercedes for having me on your site.  Enjoy!  XO ~ Cassie

 

Enjoy and thank you Cassie!

    I love this idea! I never want to make a whole batch because my husband never likes sweets and I end up eating them all!

    Now this is my kind of cookie. It is huge and tasty, makes me want to challenge myself to see if I could eat it all.

      I would have no trouble eating it all myself Kim! But that’s the point of a single serving, right?? Thanks for reading!
