These make super light and fluffy cookies. They feel almost like cake more than cookies, Very delicious! Their not overly sweet either I think adding chocolate chips would make these perfect.

Photo of the cookies in my cookie jar. The tag was from Justine and Sue of Les Farms wedding Favor. Now this made a beautiful photo but I don’t suggest putting these in a cookie jar like the one I have their very moist cookies and will stick one on top of the other. Id probably put parchment paper or wax paper between layers of cookies in a container.
