We really enjoyed meeting my son’s teachers at “Follow Your Son’s Schedule” night this week.  When we stopped by the refreshment tables on the way out, I saw that the Clipper Chippers had disappeared, there was one Potato Chip Cookie left, and a few of these Nutella Crinkles lingered.

Next week I think I’ll invite my son’s teachers to our home to “Follow Your Student’s Schedule” after school.  Maybe I can get some of them to volunteer to bring casseroles, so that when he comes downstairs for a brief appearance around 6:00 p.m. and asks “what’s for dinner,” I’ll have an answer for him.  🙂

These Nutella Crinkles were my son’s favorite of the three batches of cookies I brought to school.  I clipped the original recipe years ago from a Gold Medal booklet, but you can find it here on the Betty Crocker website.
