I can't stop eating these cookies!

Posted on March 05 2021

I blame a lovely customer who came in raving about Charlotte's Chewy Choc Chunk Cookie Baking Box from Magnolia Kitchen. She planted the idea in my head that these would be totally delicious.  As we have family dinners once a week I thought this would be a grand idea as a sweet treat after dinner.  The family were all coming on Sunday (12 of us) for a soccer tournament.  So on Saturday night I baked a batch to be all ready for Sunday, when they all love to eat whatever I can cook up.  Sadly lockdown was sprung on us so the tournament was cancelled and I was left with a tin of cookies, and well they are just pretty hard to resist!  All I can say is be warned if you grab the box it will be hard to stop! Scroll down to see a family favourite recipe I make. Apricot/Almond cake It's a winner every time!
 In our last short lockdown 3.0, I made the most of it and painted our store for four days carefully working my way around the store packing up and covering up stock so as not to drip paint everywhere.  It looks so fresh and we have more renovations to come.  New seasons clothing from Coop & Elk have arrived, shoes, boots, jewellery & homewares! Check out our new arrivals to keep up with what's arriving in store.
 
Here is a cute craft activity to do at home to keep little ones busy - make a little house for toy animals or dolls.  It's a fun way to upcycle up any boxes and scrap paper you have lying around too.
