Hi there! Did you miss me? I missed you! Sorry I have been away for so long, life threw me a few curve balls so I had to take a hiatus. Things are slowly getting back on track. I still don't have a working computer though, so a special thank you to my love for letting me use his. My camera is currently down for the count so I also have to apologize for poor quality of the pictures, I had to use my camera phone. I still won't be able to post as frequently as I like right now, but my plan is to be back on a regular schedule in September. I hope you will stick around and be patient.
These cookies are the reason I could not stay away any longer, they turned out so perfectly I just knew I had to share. This recipe makes 3 dozen so I shared with my family. My niece Alexa loved them so much that she declared that she wants to grow up to be a good baker like her LaLa! I can't think of any better praise.
I hope you and yours enjoy this recipe as much as my family did.
