The Cupcake Lady's Cookies

This morning my brother embarked on a year long holiday around the world, I am sad that we will not see him for such a long time but I am excited that he is following his dreams and we look forward to hear about his adventures.

One thing I am super excited about is that his first stop is Los Angeles and he is visiting our cousin which we have not seen for nearly 25 years I wish it was me, I speak to my cousin on a regular basis we remember the good old days she always says how she wishes that she could taste my baking so what better opportunity than to send her a batch of cookies with my little brother.

I want to share the love these cookies are just fantastic for any occasion.
