Greek yogurt cookies with greek yogurt frosting are delicious and sweet with a glass of cold milk and a good book. These taste just like the sour cream cookies your grandma used to make!
Parenthood is not all that it is cracked up to be. I liken it to marriage. You see that starry eyed new couple walking down the aisle and think, "they have NO idea!" But then you remember when it was YOU walking down that aisle and you were full of hope and ideas of how your marriage was going to be different from everyone else. Fast forward ten plus years, give yourselves a few marital "dents" and now you're seasoned, right?
And it's the exact same with your kids. You hold that newborn in your arms in the hospital and they are so perfect and lovely. Fast forward, bring them home and it's now a screaming newborn that has. not. stopped. crying. for. hours. HOURS! Fast forward ten plus years and you've gone through the cute preschool years, fun little early elementary years and now you've got a strong willed, strong minded and some might even say a tab bit stubborn pre teen.
If you hadn't gone into some of the hardest things in your life a little blindly, would you have gone into them at all?
None of us would I think. Things that are hard always require us to take a deep breath, swallow and take that first step forward or backward. We can face it head on, or not face it at all. We only have two directions in life to go.
Since I am in the throes of raising my first preteen girl there are a lot of times I have to step forward blindly and hope I'm doing a good job. Your first is always hard, right? I disagree. All of my kids are hard in their own respect and are all different.
To handle some of the hardest nights of parenthood I have friends who say a glass of wine and a good movie are their cure. Not me. I want cookies. I think I will always want cookies.
These greek yogurt cookies are perfect for unwinding with. These cookies taste a lot like the sour cream cookies your grandparents and parents used to make. They are incredible, and I even made a delicious greek yogurt buttercream to go with it. I couldn't keep my fingers out of the frosting.
