"World's Best Cookies"

I'm up to my neck in Halloween things this week. I need to go and get into my costume in a few minutes. The weekend was spent baking 100 cookies to use last night at a church function and to take today to the pre-school. I need to bake another 150 this evening to take to the kindergarten the day after tomorrow and while I'm at it I'll probably serve them in my English classes this week. Nothing fancy. I'm not going to make cut out Halloween cookies when I've got that many cookies to make but these are good, wholesome cookies that everyone seems to like.

How I would like to sit down with a tall glass of milk and a couple cookies and just read blogs this morning, but no go! Too busy!

Yum, I'd love to get a bag of your cookies when I come trick or treating. Just from reading the recipe I know they are delicious.

What kind of glaze do the cookies have?

I must certainly have a go at making these. I'm allergic to wheat, so it's never easy to find suitable recipes. It sounds as if you have a great week ahead.

Corn flakes - who would have guessed...
I'm gonna have to try this one.

Do you have an oven? I've never seen an oven in a Japanese kitchen, only toaster ovens.
