Here is one of my favorite cookies. My Mom used to tell me that these were healthy breakfast cookies and would pack a couple in my lunch if I didn’t have time to eat breakfast before school.

I made a half recipe and got 21 cookies and baked them at 165C for 12 minutes to a lovely golden colour. I also subbed macadamias for the walnuts. The mix I found impossible to roll as it was thick and gluey so just dropped spoonful on the baking sheets though I found it best to wet the spoon so the mix fell off and didn't stick to the spoon. I made these for the DS to take to his music recreation group where they loved them, thank you Pink Diamond for a good healthy cookie (or a biscuit downunder), made for Everyday a Holiday.
