Notes

I love how versatile this recipe is. There are infinite add-in possibilities. I usually just add in chocolate chips. But I plan on trying almonds, mint extract, peanut butter chips, white and dark chocolate chips, and whatever else I come up with along the way. It's so simple to bake, and uses melted butter, which really saves time.
