Black Widow Cookies

Shhh… Don’t tell anyone that I am #TeamCap but secretly love Black Widow. I mean she can kick some major butt. With the Captain America Civil War movie hitting theaters on 5/6/16 I thought it was the perfect opportunity to make some Black Widow cookies. It’s a great way to kick off the premiere of the movie that is a must-see for ages 10 and up.
