Super delicious cookies baked by a super proud mom. Ok, so when my 16 year old son told me he wanted to bike across America, I prayed he would change his mind and take up something less stressful for me. Something like pottery? Sewing? Cooking? But there was no talking him out of this.

Schneur, the youngest rider out of 11 boys joining Investors Bank Bike4Friendship, a Jewish organization that supports families with special needs children, began his journey in San Diego. 6 weeks-straight, 100-mile-per-day (except for Saturdays), ending in Manhattan, raising money for special needs children! So proud, so excited and so impressed with his dedication, devotion and determination.

Schneur is riding in honor of his 9 year old brother with special needs, and I just can’t wait to meet him at the finish line! And what better way to celebrate all the cyclists than to send them homemade cookies with a personalized label featuring their group photo taken at the start of their ride in San Diego?

These cookies can be made into miniature sized cookies using a mini scoop, or you can make them super large by using the large scoop found here. No doubt, these were appreciated by all, and baked with love for my son in admiration for this special challenge. Go Schneur! We are cheering you on all the way.
