Need a gift? Order a cookie tin filled with my cookies!

I will be selling my cookies in cookie tins and bags at the temple on Sundays till Christmas. These cookies make the perfect gift for your family, friends, co-workers, even your boss! I only bake these cookies at Christmas time and if you just want to try some, I will have them also available in smaller bags. I prefer to put them in cookie tins though, not because I make more money that way (which, by the way, is not at all the case), just because these cookies are so rich and delicate, they usually do not hold up well in a bag. If you do not handle your bag of cookies with care you might end up with cookie crumbs. Then you'll have to eat them yourself instead of giving them as a gift. Or maybe you will want to buy them in a bag so that you have an excuse for having to eat cookies even though you are on a diet. But who is on a diet at Christmas time anyways....

Actually, bags are okay if you are buying them for yourself or just want to see how they taste before you buy a whole tin. Just be sure to handle your bag of cookies with care...

Here is a list of ingredients for my cookies:
