Fidget spinner cookies! #delish

Hey, fellow unicorns! Trends have a tendency to have an impact on our lives. As soon as a trend goes viral, all of a sudden everyone is talking about it and everyone wants to be a part of the trend somehow because apparently, it is the only way to stay up to date with the InterWeb. Usually, I love trends and love to follow it even more but recently any trend becomes viral even when it does not make any sense especially the trend of Fidget Spinners! I seriously don’t understand why it went viral and why everyone was ready to throw their hard earned cash on something that had no purpose at all. Everyone was mesmerized by this toy including my brother, my grandparents and even my cat! ๐Ÿ˜€ But even when I don’t get the craze behind this trend, I have to agree that it was a genius idea by the creator Scott McCoskery (Yes, I googled that!) because the entire world fell for it. To top it all, there was so many cool and amazing fidget spinner themed things people did as an homage to this viral trend and one thing that really caught my attention were the fidget spinner cookies (no surprise there! ๐Ÿ˜€ ) and I knew I had to at leastย try to recreate it. It was a challenging experience since I am not a pro at cooking and I am the clumsiest person that you would probably meet (ok exaggerating a little bit now!) but they turned out to be really delicious and would make a fun treat to show off your prowess in cooking in front of your friends. Take a look…
