Funfetti Hi Hat Cookies taste as good as they look! Whip a batch up for the perfect back-to-school treat!
Oh hi, is it time for the kids to go back to school yet?
I love my children, truly I do. Every year around August I feel the need to reiterate that fact — partly so strangers don’t think that I’m a bad mom, but mostly to remind myself. Welcome to parenthood, it’s a confusing range of emotions.
Never do I appreciate teachers more than I do during the last few weeks of summer vacation. We’ve exhausted every craft idea on Pinterest (well… the easy ones, anyways. If it involves a trip to the hardware store, it’s not happening), worn out our welcome at the movie theater matinees (in my defense, I don’t MEAN to nap while my children throw popcorn), and it’s too hot to do anything outside. My pool feels like bath water and my glasses fog up the second I walk outside. No thank you, sirs and ma’ams.
By the time that the first day of school rolls around, I think we are all ready to get out of each other’s faces. And by “all,” I mean just me. My children literally never get tired of me. My toddler actually watches me pee, so I know this for a fact.
With this being said, the first day of school is worthy of a celebration. And perhaps some condolences for their teacher — 25 kids every day is not my kind of life. And what I have found, is that dessert is the very best way to say, “Hey, sorry I’m so excited about you taking my kid off my hands for 8 hours a day. Good luck.”
Brownies and cupcakes are always nice, but these frosting-laden Funfetti HiHat Cookies are a step above the rest. Piled high with frosting and sprinkles and topped with a cherry, they will surely make everyone smile. And they are SO much easier to whip up than they look!
