Friends, Pete and Sherlie, gave us a present at Christmas which at first we could not work out. The label called it Cranberry Hootycreeks which meant nothing to us, but reading the smaller print we discovered it was a jar of ingredients artistically layered all ready to be made into cookies. No doubt to our friends across the ocean it would have been instantly obvious.
The ingredients looked so good layered in this way that it seemed a pity to interfere with them but to get to taste our cookie treats we just had to do it. The dry ingredients were tipped out and stirred.
We mixed the dry ingredients in with a mixture of softened butter, an egg and a teaspoon of vanilla and beat them all together until fluffy in consistency.
We then dropped tablespoon full amounts onto a baking tray and baked at 350F for about ten minutes.
They smelled wonderful as they were baking and looked wonderful when cooling on their trays. Best of all though they tasted wonderful with a big cup of Clipper Tea drunk from a porcelain mug with chicken decorations! Nice present!
