sweet cookies that keep really well in the freezer
I made these cookies for Father’s Day (the reason I was in Thanet and couldn’t spend hours pouring over Emin’s work). At the last moment I found out that I was out of vanilla, so I substituted with cinnamon, which tasted delicious when dunked in tea. I also couldn’t help myself, so I threw in a handful of the butterscotch chips I received in my Food Penpal box (thanks again Nic!).

The recipe says it makes 12-15 cookies, which must be about the size of a dinner plate each! I made 30, each a little bigger than their Maryland counterparts, and still have 2/3rds of the dough in my freezer.
