BBAC 2011: Day Twenty-Five

Posted on Sunday, at bought • 256 views

Last day of this year's Beauty Blog Advent Calendar…and another cookie recipe! I've loved these since I was in my teens. They're soft and cakey, and they don't take a whole lot of prep. You can add a spice like cinnamon, sprinkle colored sugar on the top, add nuts or raisins…it's a good base. (I'm a purist. I like them plain. Then I dip them in cocoa or drinking chocolate..!)
