Children and adults alike love these cookies, and they are perfect for any occasion that arises–whether you are baking a batch to share with your children or grandchildren, preparing a “Welcome” gift for new neighbours, or simply looking for something delicious to enjoy on your own with a glass of ice-cold milk and a good book. Whatever the occasion, may I suggest making a double batch of these wonderful cookies–just to make sure there are enough to go around.
