    This is an easy one pot recipe that is sure to warm you up and make you feel cozy on a cold winter's night.  It's one of my favourite dishes when visiting family in the Southwest and I've tried to recreate my aunts "secret recipe".

    Cindy here from your UW bakery, I thought I’d share my favourite cookie that I grew up with. Something that always showed up like a warm hug made by both my Mother and Grandmother whenever a little extra love was needed. The simple and delicate flavour of these cookies are loved by all, making this not only a holiday cookie but a favourite go to treat.
