So, one of the places I worked used to have a box of books which you could purchase at a heavily discounted price each month and this week’s recipe comes from the 500 Cookies recipe book I bought for the princely sum of $2.00.
This is one of my favourite recipes but I’m sure you’ll see a few more. Kitty isn’t too fond of biscuits but served with warm milk, they’re just delicious.
