 As far as making cookies go, I am ready for them any time of the day.  Maybe I was meant to be a bakers daughter. I can eat them anytime and I can bake them anytime.  They have become my obsession.  I also want to do a weekly dedication to cookies from around the world.  Ain’t that a fun idea?

I have loyalties towards my cookies, I hope that there is an unsaid limit to the number of cookies a food blogger can post.

With kids dunking their hand in the empty cookie jar and looking at me, ‘like where did all that go’..It was time to make another batch.  Sitting in the refrigerator was  half a can of condensed milk which had to be used and what other better way than make these cute cut out Condensed MILK Cookies.  If I could wrap them and stem them up, I would, they looked adorable.

After they were cut and baked did my little one realize we had flower shaped cookies. He started screaming out ‘I am not a girl’, ‘I don’t wanna girly cookies

‘.  After a quick funny moment, he gave in to the smell and a huge batch of cute cookies staring back at him.

The batch might not last long, you have to wait to see my next cookie in action.
These cookies are perfect as sandwich cookies, I would drizzle them with a jam or marmalade to amp them up a bit, not for looks alone but compliments in flavor quite well.
