These were made specifically to raise funds for the people effected by the Feb 22nd Earthquake
This recipe came to me from a Recipe Book put together by & for the St John Fellowship in Oamaru. Ellen Frisby contributed the recipe for the book & I have used this recipe several times.

Today I was baking so the cookies can be sold to raise funds for the Red Cross or Salvation Army to help the people of Canterbury who endured an Earthquake on Tuesday 22nd Feb 2011.
We know loads of people there & while the people I know are all ok, the destruction was massive & too many people died. Not to mention the aftershocks still continue, making the mental recovery even harder.

These cookies are going to be sold at my work tomorrow for donations - I have an awesome boss.

These look really tasty and I’ll have to try them. Glad that all of your friends were safe. All of our friends there are safe too, thank goodness, but one of them lost his workmate who was in one of the churches that collapsed. It’s so terribly sad. Hope your fundraiser went well.
