Look at this wonderful photo, Miss Muffin (nearly 12yrs) took it. She has a keen interest in photography and has a far better eye than me. She is also coming along nicely with her kitchen skills and is still making the odd meal. She doesn’t want me to blog every one so I have respected that. These cookies need a mention though, these were so good that I could have eaten far too many. That is not like me, I am not a food binger. I had to get Mr Muffin to hide them from me as they were part of my baking for his work along with the Cherry Turnovers. You have been warned.
The original recipe can be found on Wellness Mamma.
