It’s winter big time right now where I live! We are under a heavy snowfall warning, and could get up to 25cm of snow in total! Not to mention that tonight we could see -20 degrees C temperatures. It’s so wintery and beautiful! No really, it is! ;) I love this weather around the holiday season (but ask me how I feel about it come March…now that’s a different story).
Anyway, it’s the perfect kind of weather for making cookies! Cozy, warm, gooey cookies!
These cookies are so great! They’re soft and flavourful, and they make a perfect nut-free snack for the kids lunch boxes! I also love this recipe because it makes a huge batch! Lots for eating, lots for freezing!
