 You will love these easy, cheap cookie recipes! 15+ cookie recipes you NEED to try this weekend! #dessertrecipes #vegetarianrecipes #cookierecipes #frugalrecipes #kidfriendlyrecipesWhen I make lunch for myself and for Matthew I usually like to include some sort of dessert. Grocery store desserts can get a bit expensive and always include some weird ingredients I can’t really pronounce.

I have to satisfy my sweet tooth somehow!

To cut cost and still get my fill of sweet things, I started batch cooking desserts on Sundays (then have a bit throughout the week).

I try to make something different each week, but cookies are my favorite type of dessert! There are so many different kinds and they’re easy to make – you just mix the ingredients, drop the dough on the pan, then bake!

I’ve found 10+ cookie recipes that are tasty, easy to make, AND CHEAP!

Please share this list on Pinterest, Facebook, or anyplace else! And bookmark this page, I’ll keep it updated with new recipes!
