My mum used to make these cookie every fall season. They were one of my families favourite treats. They aren’t your typical cookies though, they are almost like cake cookies or muffin tops. They puff up and are so moist and perfect.
I don’t have much of a sweet tooth. Any time I have a snack craving, its always for something salty. Olives, cheese, nuts, anything but cookies, cake and chocolate. My man on the other hand, has the biggest sweet tooth. I am happy I get to bake for someone. I love all the recipes my mum used to make me but it makes be even more happy that I get to pass along those recipes for someone else to enjoy.
