So, tell me, do you have Hugs AND Cookies?

It poured all day so we didn't get to the property for any clean-up. Hopefully tomorrow the sun will shine.
I have posted this recipe before but I did a bit of tweaking today. I used millet flour instead of all-purpose flour only because I ran out and that's what was staring at me from the pantry.  It's better for you than regular flour so I will probably use it again. My first thought was that I'd be kicking myself for wasting an hour getting everything done because they wouldn't turn out but surprisingly, they were very good. The texture was a bit different but the taste was perfect. So, saying all that, if you prefer to use millet flour then by all means, do.
Fresh cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves.

I use brown, free-range, organic eggs. :)
AND...I still stir with a wooden spoon. Always have and always will.

My kitchen company, Sierra. I only have to reach for a cook-book and she's there.

Geesh..even our dog loves these cookies. Sierra thinks, "no way."

So, Nana has not run out of hugs or cookies. The cookie part may be a 'grey area' but I always have lots of hugs.

It's still raining and it's time to pick a good movie and kick back.
Have a great weekend. Hope the sun is shining where you are and if not, go make some cookies. :)

                        Enough of this work. Time for tea and a cookie or three.
hugs, Deb


  1. Why do I suddenly have a craving for a cookie,or two...or three...ahem...four?

  2. When the kids were small, the cookie jar was ALWAYS full of homemade cookies. Some, like oatmeal, I figured were as good as a meal.
    Now with just the two of us, a batch of cookies is a dangerous thing.
    But I might just try that recipe. . . .

  3. They sound delicious!

    I always have helpers in the kitchen when I'm cooking, too!

  4. Sierra knows you require close supervision! The cookies look delicious!

    I'm so tired of the rain. I think we've had it all week now.

  5. mmmmmmm...cookies. I think I need to bake some, soon! I made two loaves of whole wheat millet bread Thursday--delish!

  6. I don't do much baking anymore...but I must try your recipe. I'm making chocolate chip cookie in the morning as it has been requested! :) Thank you so much for stopping by and visiting me. It was so appreciated.

  7. I always have help in the kitchen, too! lol! I usually have 2 or 3 on the kitchen island watching and hoping for a morsel of something. The recipe looks good and I'll try it sometime. Hope you enjoyed your tea and cookies!
