Peanut Butter Cookies

The December-end holiday period is as much about unwinding from work as it is about giving gifts to family, friends or colleagues who have meant something to you in the course of the year.And we believe home-baked cookies are an excellent way to thank someone and show appreciation. This is exactly what we did a while back when N baked these delicious peanut butter cookies for her colleague at work. 

Try'em. Its true love !
