No-Bake Thumbprint Cookies

Aren’t they so cute??!!

No bake thumbprint cookies 4

We also got to see a methane cannon, and I got to “play” with a million-volt Tesla coil! (By play I mean stick a large pole into it while it was on and watch all the charge go to the tip of the pole.)

Anyways, onto cookies!
