Awesome cookies JanuaryBride. These are very similar to cookies that we make here in Ontario, except that they are more tender and delicate. Certainly delicious. I shared these with two sets of neighbors, you made three families very happy today. Just what we needed to get rid of the dreary rainy day gloom. Thanks so much for sharing.
