A few weeks back, Saana had a Christmas party at school, where in all the kids (or their moms) contributed with some party bites. One of her friend had brought these lovely cookies with her, and Saana loved it so much that she was all behind me asking to bake it for her. Earlier this week I managed to catch-up with that friend’s mom and got the recipe from her! And here they are – soft and chewy with crispy edges, and very colourful. Sure to be an instant hit with kids.
