Sorry, it’s been so long since I’ve posted. The Sci-Regency series is keeping me busy. And though my mind is filled with Regency edict, dreamy gentlemen, and a rough highlander at the moment, there is always time for cookies!  I love to bake.  So, with the holiday season coming up, I thought I’d share a new favorite cookie. Oddly enough this is a bit healthier than most cookies.  Oh sure it still has sugar, but lets face it baked deserts without sugar are…well they aren’t good.  Sorry, they just aren’t!  Everything in moderation, right?  Well that is my philosophy anyway.  Enjoy!
