Kristin's Cookie Balls

OK, the secret is out! I cook 2 batches of cookies and then freeze them for later. I do this for 2 reasons: I have a sweet tooth and the kids know that if they eat all of their dinner, they get a cookie! I had a friend whose son would not eat any vegetables at all. Until he met me. At my house, he would eat at least one vegetable in exchange for a cookie. It's the small things in life.
